Minsk ready to share experience with Damascus in ensuring security

Last week, Belarus’ Foreign Minister Makey visited Syria, and met with President Bashar al-Assad, Prime Minister Wael al-Halyaki, Minister for Foreign Affairs and Emigrants Walid al-Muallem, supreme mufti of Syria, Ahmad Badr al-Din Hassoun, and representatives of the Syrian business community. Makey’s visit fits the national action programme aiming to diversify Belarusian exports by deepening cooperation with the Middle East region. In 2014 the minister visited the UAE, Iraq and Iran having the similar purpose. The Belarusian government also expects to participate in the restoration of the Syrian economy when the military-political crisis ends. In addition, official Minsk is ready to provide diplomatic support for the Syrian leadership in establishing full cooperation within the international coalition against terrorism.
