Belarus views energy cooperation with Germany as promising


According to Deputy Foreign Minister of Belarus Sergei Aleinik, since Belarus gained independence, the Federal Republic of Germany has been traditionally among Belarus’ biggest foreign economic partners. That is why it is not fortuitous that the Belarusian Investment Forum will take place in Frankfurt am Main, Germany, this year.

Sergei Aleinik believes that bilateral cooperation in energy looks quite promising. First of all, it is alternative energy where Germany has cutting-edge technologies.

Sergei Aleinik stressed that the Belarusian-German Economic Cooperation Council restored its annual sessions. The Foreign Ministers of the two states hold regular meetings. The Minsk forum contributes a lot to the development of the bilateral dialogue. This year the forum expects a representative of the German government.

The Deputy Foreign Minister expressed hope that the Belarusian-German economic cooperation would not lose its momentum in the future. The Belarusian side will take every effort to maintain it, he said.

“We count on German support in economic and public reforms in our country as well as in the simplification of the visa regime between Belarus and the European Union,” Sergei Aleinik said.

He expressed confidence that “our joint efforts aimed at the development and intensification of the bilateral dialogue at all levels will bring the two states to a closer cooperation between the two nations in a peaceful, stable and prosperous Europe”.
