MINSK, 1 November (BelTA) – Belarus and China will stand together to resist assaults staged by individual Western forces in matters relating to human rights. President of Belarus Alexander Lukashenko made the statement as he met with Meng Jianzhu, a member of the Political Bureau of the Central Committee of the Communist Party of China, the secretary of the Commission for Political and Legal Affairs of the CPC Central Committee, a member of the State Council of China, in Minsk on 1 November, BelTA has learned.

The President remarked that there was no need to analyze the situation in Belarusian-Chinese relations and tell the Belarusian and Chinese nations about the importance and intensity of these relations.

“China is a strategic ally of Belarus. Our relations have been built since the first day of independence while the foundation was laid down back in the Soviet Union times,” said the Belarusian leader.

In his words, there are absolutely no problems between Belarus and China from the point of view of the future development of the global situation. “Today we have the same views on the international agenda,” stressed Alexander Lukashenko.

According to the Belarusian head of state, China is at the forefront of the effort aimed at bringing about a multipolar world. “We also uphold the same view,” said Alexander Lukashenko. “We have always supported and will support China in matters of territorial integrity. We will also act together in counteracting assaults staged by individual forces in the West in matters relating to human rights and other things. We know these things well”.

Alexander Lukashenko also said that good relations and a common view on matters evolve between Belarus and China in politics.
