Belarusian capital becomes big platform for int’l talks
Baku, Azerbaijan, Oct. 28
Minsk fulfills its obligations of the peaceful platform for negotiations, said Belarusian President Alexander Lukashenko.
He made the remarks during the meeting with Azerbaijan’s First Deputy Prime Minister Yagub Eyyubov, BelTA news agency reported Oct. 28.
At the beginning of the meeting, Lukashenko emphasized that the sides have something to talk about on this Belarusian-Azerbaijani platform.
“Firstly, I want to congratulate you with the exam, which your power, successfully passed in Azerbaijan – the referendum. Its results are the best proof of the Azerbaijani people’s attitude towards the authorities in this difficult time,” said the Belarusian president.
“This is a big victory, and I know how it is seen in the world,” he noted adding that Azerbaijan’s image has considerably improved.
He said also that the Azerbaijani and Belarusian presidents agreed to meet on Nov. 28-29.
Lukashenko believes that the meeting with Yagub Eyyubov will be the appropriate step to prepare for the upcoming negotiations at the highest level.
“There are a number of problems that we will seriously discuss,” he said.
He also drew attention to the fact that the Belarusian capital has become a broad platform of international meetings. In particular, Minsk hosted a meeting of the Eurasian Economic Community (EAEC) on Oct. 27.
Moreover, heads of governments of the CIS (the Commonwealth of Independent States) countries will meet in the Belarusian capital on Oct. 28.
Meanwhile, a large-scale international conference of the United Nations Economic Commission for Europe (UNECE) is also being held in Minsk. The working group on Ukraine is also in session in the Belarusian capital on these days.
All this indicates that Minsk fulfills its obligations of the peaceful platform for negotiations, noted Alexander Lukashenko.
Yagub Eyyubov, for his part, said that Belarus and Alexander Lukashenko are the closest for Azerbaijan and the Azerbaijani people.
