Aleksandr Lukashenko meets with Chinese Ambassador to Belarus Gong Jianwei
Belarus is proud of its relations with China. Belarusian head of state Aleksandr Lukashenko said as he met with Ambassador Extraordinary and Plenipotentiary of China to Belarus Gong Jianwei on 5 December. The meeting was dedicated to the end of Gong Jianwei’s diplomatic mission in Belarus.
“We are proud of having such good relations with this great power. And these relations started a long time ago when China was getting back on its feet. Back then in the development of China we saw the beginnings worth paying attention to. We have learned a lot from the People’s Republic of China,” the President emphasized.
The President reminded that when he was a member of the parliament, he recommended taking a closer look at China’s experience. “We have studied China’s experience very attentively. I believe we have chosen the right policy and we already have a long history of relations with this nation,” the Belarusian leader said.
According to the President, every Belarusian can tell a lot of positive things about Belarus-China cooperation.
“China is not the future of the planet now, but its present,” Aleksandr Lukashenko is convinced. In his opinion, it is impossible to make decisions on global and regional matters without taking into account China’s view.
According to the head of state, a lot has been done in Belarus-China cooperation, including in the last two years. The head of state stressed that the Ambassador of China has been a reliable friend and has tried to cement relations between the two countries unlike some other ambassadors, who do totally opposite things. Aleksandr Lukashenko said he hopes that the experience and the knowledge that Gong Jianwei has acquired in Belarus will allow him to contribute to stronger Belarus-China relations later on.
The President praised the role of Gong Jianwei in making the friendship between the two nations stronger.
