Preparations for building football stadium, swimming pool in Minsk discussed

MINSK (BelTA) – Preparations for building the national football stadium and an international-level swimming pool in Minsk were discussed at the meeting held by Belarus President Aleksandr Lukashenko on 6 August. It is planned that these facilities will be erected using China’s gratuitous technical and economic aid, BelTA informs.

The meeting focused on the draft decrees concerning the construction of the stadium and the swimming pool. “During my latest visit to China Xi Jinping demonstrated the architectural models of these facilities to all of us. I want to stress that the construction of such sports facilities in Minsk in cooperation with China is unprecedented and should be an example for other projects which will be implemented in the future,” the head of state said.

According to Aleksandr Lukashenko, it is very important to create all necessary conditions to build the swimming pool and the stadium in compliance with international standards as soon as possible. “The Chinese side is ready to launch the construction in H1 2020,” the Belarusian leader said.
