Officials from Belarus and Chile are working together to bolster trade and economic relations between their two countries.

Belarusian Ambassador Igor Petrishenko and a Chilean Foreign Ministry delegation discussed bilateral ties during the latter's visit to Moscow last week, BelTA reports.

"During the meeting the parties specifically discussed the bilateral trade and economic cooperation," the press service of the Belarusian diplomatic mission said, according to BelTA. "The parties had a meaningful exchange of views on possible steps to intensify Belarusian-Chilean cooperation in this area. In this connection, particular attention was paid to the need to develop the necessary legal framework of bilateral relations."

The Chilean delegation was led by Andrew Rebolledo, the director of the general directorate of international economic relations at the Chilean Foreign Ministry, and Chilean Ambassador Juan Eduardo Eguiguren Guzman.
