President of the Republic of Belarus Aleksandr Lukashenko sees good prospects in cooperation with the Republic of the Union of Myanmar. The head of state made the statement as he met with Commander in Chief of the Myanmar Army Min Aung Hlaing on 4 November.

“I was informed about the results of the meetings, talks and visits to Belarusian companies. I like your approach. Our dialogue is meant for a long-term perspective and we should follow this path no matter what,” the Belarusian President said as he welcomed the Myanmar delegation.

The Belarusian President believes that Myanmar has a strategic location in the region. “This contributes to the country’s economic growth and can also be useful for Belarus, as our country runs joint projects with Myanmar. There are very promising and big markets nearby,” the head of state is convinced.

In his opinion, if our countries make products together, they will greatly benefit from selling them on other markets.

“We have no closed topics in our cooperation. We are ready to develop relations with Myanmar in all areas: from regular deliveries of goods to your country to buying products made in your country which are not produced in Belarus,” the Belarusian leader said. The President noted that Belarus is also ready to cooperate with Myanmar in the military-technical sphere, training of personnel. "We do not hide this fact, and your visit is the evidence of this," Aleksandr Lukashenko emphasized.

He asked to extend his good wishes to the President of the Republic of the Union of Myanmar and conveyed an invitation to him to visit Belarus at any time with the aim of bolstering the bilateral ties.

Min Aung Hlaing, for his part, said that Myanmar is interested in organizing Myanmar President’s visit to Belarus in the near future. He also thanked the Belarusian side for the good organization of the visit, a warm welcome and a very extensive program.
