MINSK, 25 June (BelTA) – We invite China to team up and create a large educational and scientific platform in Belarus, Belarusian President Aleksandr Lukashenko said as he met with Party Secretary of Peking University Hao Ping and representatives of other Chinese universities on 25 June, BelTA has learned.

Let's think about creating a large educational and scientific platform in Belarus in order to spread education, science and culture to the European continent. We are ready to play a serious role in this regard. Indeed, we are moving forward step by step, implementing certain projects, but now time plays a crucial role. We need to do everything quickly in order to be a leader, to achieve results," he said.
