Tehran, 13 March (BelTA) - Belarus and Iran successfully reversed the pause in relations and agreed on many things. In general, the agreements are estimated at $100 million, Belarusian President Aleksandr Lukashenko said following the talks with Iranian President Ebrahim Raisi, BelTA has learned.
"We took stock of our relations. The Iranian president and I concurred that there was a certain short pause in our relations. The current visit shows that we have successfully reversed this pause and agreed on a lot of things. The visit is special also because we came to terms, for the first time, on all issues of bilateral cooperation and concluded many treaties, agreements and memorandums of intent," the Belarusian leader said.
"I can estimate the current visit at about $100 million if we implement all our agreements," Aleksandr Lukashenko said.
"The Iranian president and I agree that sanctions are a time of opportunities. It is very important for us not to harness them," the head of state emphasized.
