MINSK, 15 September (BelTA) - At a meeting with Russian President Vladimir Putin Belarusian President Aleksandr Lukashenko suggested establishing trilateral cooperation of Belarus, Russia and North Korea, BelTA has learned.
"I watched closely your last events-packed working days. It was nice to see your meeting with Kim Jong-un at the Vostochny cosmodrome. I've been there myself. We have visited this cosmodrome before. I think that we can think about trilateral cooperation. North Korea, Russia... I know that Koreans have a great interest in cooperation with Russia. I think there will be some work for Belarus. Taking into account the problems that exist," the Belarusian leader said.
Aleksandr Lukashenko also noted that he will inform his Russian counterpart about the steps in cooperation with the African countries, taking into account the recent visit of the president of Equatorial Guinea to Belarus. “A very famous person. A sophisticated one. There is also joint work in the African direction.”
“Long story short, it seemed that we had resolved all the issues but they keep piling up, this is why it is necessary to consult in good time,” the Belarusian head of state said in his introductory remarks at the protocol part of the meeting.
