During discussions held Tuesday between Mikhail Myasnikov, speaker of the Council of the Republic of Belarus, and Manoj Kumar Bhart, India's ambassador to Belarus, the former invited India to develop a plan to increase relations.
Myasnikov stated that the plan should include political contacts, mutual support on the international stage and visitation information.
"The comprehensive plan, which was adopted earlier, actually ends in 2015. Therefore we can talk about the medium- and long-term development of trade and economic cooperation between our countries," Myasnikov said.
He also stated that agreements between India and the Eurasian Economic Union would play a significant role. Myasnikov noted that discussions to clarify mutual objectives and preferences to enhance trade would be beneficial for both parties.
"Moreover, we must take stock of our relations and see the bottlenecks that hinder the development of bilateral trade and economic cooperation,” Myasnikov said.
The agenda for the Belarusian – Indian intergovernmental commission was reviewed during the meeting.
