Belarus interested in vigorous commodity trade with Azerbaijan

MINSK, 29 August (BelTA) – Belarus would like to expand commodity trade with Azerbaijan as much as possible, President of the Republic of Belarus Alexander Lukashenko said during talks with his Azerbaijani counterpart Ilham Aliyev on 29 August before the departure of the Azerbaijani head of state, BelTA has learnt.

The Belarusian President noted that the 28 August talks were intensive and fruitful and generated new ideas on expanding the bilateral cooperation across many fields.

“I appreciate that you agreed to receive a Belarusian delegation in Baku. We will discuss and work on the suggestions put forward during our meeting in Minsk. As you said, we need to “finalize” our plan of actions,” Alexander Lukashenko said.

“I will be honest with you. We would like Belarusian goods to be present on the market of Azerbaijan; after all, Belarusian products have a world-class quality. In turn, we will prefer Azerbaijani goods other things being equal,” the Belarusian President said. He added: “I think it will make much sense, as we do not have any barriers in the bilateral trade”.
