MINSK, 22 June (BelTA) – Belarusian-Israeli relations demonstrate positive dynamics. Israeli Aliyah and Immigrant Absorption Minister, chairperson of the Israel-Belarus friendship league in the 20th convocation Knesset Sofa Landver made the statement during the fifth Belarusian People's Congress on 22 June, BelTA has learned.
Sofa Landver remarked that Belarus-Israel relations rely on the solid foundation of history of the two nations. A generation of Israel's founding fathers is related to the Belarusian land. A number of outstanding Israeli people have Belarusian roots. “I think there is no need to look long and hard for plots able to connect our countries and enable mutual understanding of the two nations,” said Sofa Landver.
The high level of trust between Belarus and Israel is also confirmed by the lack of visas between countries. The procedure for using Israeli loans to finance joint projects in Belarus has been greatly simplified. Belarus-Israel mutual trade has increased by a lot. “In politics the Israeli-Belarusian dialogue demonstrates mutual recognition of the partner's sovereign right to independently decide on and build relations with other countries,” stressed Sofa Landver.
Sofa Landver said she believes that delegates of the fifth Belarusian People's Congress will be able to work out effective decisions for the prosperity of Belarus.
