Soon, Belarusian-Chinese relations will receive the status of “iron brotherhood, exemplary all-round strategic cooperation and all-weather partnership.” This will be recorded in a joint declaration, which we will sign during the next visit at the highest level, “the deputy minister explained.
As for the decision on a joint Year of the Regions, it recalls that it was reached in January during a telephone conversation between President Alexander Lukashenko and Chairman of the People’s Republic of China Xi Jinping.
By the way, the joint event is the third thematic year between the countries. In 2018, the Year of Tourism took place, and in 2019, the Year of Education.
Interaction in this format is a tradition, say local observers. Each of the six Belarusian regions, including the capital of the republic, has already established twinning ties with a number of provinces. About 20 cooperation agreements have been signed between the cities of the two countries, and in Guangzhou, Chongqing and Shanghai there are Consulates General of the Republic of Belarus. In the near future, a similar mission will appear in Hong Kong.
“According to Borisevich’s deep assumption,” “this is regional interaction between countries, in particular, with China.” … The highlight of regional cooperation is that it brings peoples closer together. “
