and the two brotherly peoples, are in the nature of a strategic partnership. It is natural that the difficult global political situation has not had any negative impact on our relations. On the contrary, we have always supported each other in difficult times, and this tradition continues. Mutually beneficial economic cooperation is the flagship of further development of relations between Belarus and Azerbaijan,” Petrishenko said.
The deputy prime minister pointed out that the interest to expand trade and economic cooperation on equal and mutually beneficial terms was repeatedly expressed during bilateral meetings this year.
“Following the visit of the Prime Minister of Belarus to Azerbaijan in May, the meeting of the heads of government in Cholpon-Ata in August, as well as during the 12th meeting of the intergovernmental commission, held on June 1, we identified specific areas of cooperation in the economic sector and signed the relevant documents.
