According to the Belarusian head of state, it is with big pain and sorrow that people in Belarus have learned the news about the passing of Qaboos bin Said al Said who did a lot for the development of Oman and the enhancement of relations with other states, including Belarus.

The address reads: “We suggest focusing joint efforts on fully removing barriers, on reducing the number of exemptions and restrictions on EAEU markets as much as possible, on preventing the possibility of emergence of new kinds of barriers that may stand in the way of free competition."
Aleksandr Lukashenko said: “Why haven't we come to terms on oil deliveries with the Russian president yet? Because Russia wants us to buy oil at prices above the world ones. Totally unacceptable. This is why I've rejected the offer to buy such oil and plainly said we will find oil in some other place."
I am committed to Belarus' independence, Belarus President Aleksandr Lukashenko said as he took part in a ceremony to present the Spiritual Revival award, special president's prizes to art luminaries and the Belarusian Sports Olympus award.
