Meeting with Russian politician and statesman Dmitry Rogozin
Belarusian President Aleksandr Lukashenko met with Russian politician and statesman Dmitry Rogozin 14 August.
“I am glad to meet with you today and to discuss all the issues that have accumulated over this time. I know you as an active person who cannot stay away from major developments in the region and the world. Thus, I believe that your experience and knowledge will be useful for promoting our common ideas that we have shared for a long time. We have a common Fatherland, and we need to work together in its best interests. You have many ideas. I know it. I am ready to make the most of all available scientific and practical potential of Belarus in our common interests, in the interests of strengthening the unity of Belarus and Russia,” the head of state said.
Dmitry Rogozin responded that his trip to Belarus would be brief, but productive. He thanked Aleksandr Lukashenko for the opportunity to meet. “I am here in Minsk on a short working trip. Today I am going to meet with representatives of the industry of the Republic of Belarus, my old friends with whom I have maintained good relations. I will have talks with them on a number of projects that are primarily related to our science and technology. I will tell you about it today. I think that it will be interesting to you,” he said.
Aleksandr Lukashenko noted at the beginning of the meeting that Dmitry Rogozin “completely vanished from the radar screens; mass media hardly writes about him now”.
“I keep working the way I did. In a different capacity, but my work has a greater potential taking into account the colossal changes taking place in the world of technology. Today I will tell you about this,” Dmitry Rogozin said. Dmitry Rogozin was in charge of the state space corporation Roscosmos and held a number of other important positions in the government, defense industry and diplomacy of the Russian Federation.
