Belarus maps out bilateral cooperation with Venezuela

Belarus and Venezuela are setting out a road map for stronger long-term bilateral cooperation, according to Belarusian Vice Premier Anatoly Tozik.

Tozik said at an event on Tuesday marking Venezuela's Independence Day that the two sides have already agreed to evaluate the implementation of joint projects between their countries, BelTA reports.

He said forming a strategic partnership with the Latin American nation is one of Belarus's top foreign policy priorities.

The two countries have already created a strong foundation for bilateral ties and have signed more than 30 different agreements, according to BelTA.

Tozik said that annual meetings of joint commissions for trade and economic cooperation are an effective means of boosting ties in all areas, including their position on international issues.
