LOGOISK DISTRICT, 23 September (BelTA) – Matters worth billions of U.S. dollars were addressed during the meeting of the presidents of Belarus and China at a recent Shanghai Cooperation Organization summit in Samarkand. Belarus President Aleksandr Lukashenko mentioned it while talking to reporters in the WW2 memorial complex Khatyn on 23 September, BelTA has learned.
Aleksandr Lukashenko said: “We addressed matters worth billions of dollars, matters concerning cutting-edge technologies during the meeting with China alone.”
The head of state reminded that the matter of production of Belarusian multiple-launch rocket systems with the current designation Polonez had been initially raised during a summit like that. China supported Belarus on the matter later on. “We are now making everything,” he stated.
Aleksandr Lukashenko remarked that during the Shanghai Cooperation Organization summit he met with many heads of state. Some of the meetings were official and some were not covered by television. “I discussed matters with Azerbaijan and with Turks, with Recep Erdogan,” he said. “When you are in this frenzied cauldron, you feel the nerve of the entire planet. It is very important for a president after all. I have to integrate Belarus into this system of world relations.”
