Belarus to develop cooperative roadmap with Venezuela on joint projects

Belarusian Vice Premier Anatoly Tozik said at a recent meeting dedicated to Venezuela's Independence Day that Belarus and Venezuela will develop a roadmap for mid-term and long-term cooperation.

Tozik said both sides have agreed to analyze progress in implementation of all joint projects and to construct a roadmap for mid-term and long-term bilateral cooperation, BelTA reports.

The development of a strategic partnership with Venezeula, Tozik said, is a priority for Belarusian foreign policy. The countries created a solid judicial, political and economic foundation of bilateral cooperation in a short time, signing more than 30 agreements, while top-level interstate dialogue remains increasingly vibrant, according to Tozik.

Tozik added that annual sessions of joint commissions for trade and economic cooperation remain an effective tool for boosting cooperation in all avenues and that both nations have similar international issue positions, cooperate closely in the UNO and other international organizations, and encourage the development of the multi-polar world, according to BelTA.

In addition to promoting trade and economic interaction between the two counties, Tozik said, there is a need to establish cooperation ties and set up joint ventures.
