Responding Thursday to questions from foreign and national journalists, the Head of State focused in particular on projects for the development of bilateral relations with the Far East. “We are already going to process and sell fish in Belarus. And all the other riches there,” he explained to the task. In addition, the parties are working on launching joint ventures, since Primorye, Lukashenko clarified, is very interested in Belarusian technologies.
In this regard, he described as “crazy” the authorities of the Baltic countries who, to their own detriment, closed their ports to the republic. But Minsk is starting to work with the eastern regions of Russia. “We want to build a port in Murmansk to get to the Far East with our goods along the Northern Sea Route,” the Belarusian leader added.
In this regard, Russian journalists asked whether Belarus plans to launch tourist routes to Primorsky Krai. The president explained that he had discussed this subject with the governor of the region Oleg Kozhemyako, and that the relevant instructions had already been given to the two governments. Cooperation with the Far East in the field of tourism was also discussed during negotiations with Russian President Vladimir Putin, Lukashenko stressed. “For Belarusians, there would be great interest, despite the distance. It’s a very interesting region. We are ready,” confirmed the Belarusian leader.
