Belarus and Pakistan reaffirmed mutual interest in the development of friendly relations and specified the areas of interaction taking into account modern realities. This was the result of the official negotiations of Belarus President Alexander Lukashenko and Pakistan Prime Minister Nawaz Sharif in Islamabad on 5 October.

“I would like to say that our approaches to the development of bilateral relations have no changed since the previous meetings. I have grown even more confident in the sincere intent of our Pakistani partners to develop friendly relations with Minsk relying on the principles of mutual trust and cooperation,” Alexander Lukashenko said after the talks with the Prime Minister.

Belarus and Pakistan are eager to advance cooperation with third countries. The participation of Belarus in the construction of the Chinese-Pakistani economic corridor is an example of it. “Belarus and Pakistan should step up efforts to enhance cooperation in science and technology. The Belarus-Pakistan center for the coordination of the scientific, technological, and innovative cooperation was opened during this visit,” the head of state said. “We will bolster agricultural and industrial cooperation. In the near future we will exchange the visits of specialists to expand cooperation in these areas.”
