MINSK, 12 February (BelTA) – Belarus is in favor of consistent and progressive development of relations with Poland, Chairman of the Council of the Republic Mikhail Myasnikovich said as he met with Poland's Minister of Foreign Affairs Jacek Czaputowicz, BelTA learned from the upper house of the Belarusian parliament.

“Belarus views Poland as an important and promising partner. In recent times the two countries have made some progress in building up trust and mutual understanding. Belarus and Poland are well positioned to expand political and economic contacts. Interparliamentary interaction can become a driver of closer bilateral relations,” Mikhail Myasnikovich believes.

In his words, Belarus and Poland are bound by history, Slavonic identity, and cultural background. All this creates a solid foundation for efficient cooperation across a broad range of areas, from economy to science and education.

“The two countries can become a kind of bridge between the EAEU and the EU. Belarus supports the idea of ‘the integration of integrations'”, Mikhail Myasnikovich underlined.
