Belarus interested in maintaining full partnership with the United States

Belarus is interested in maintaining a full partnership with the United States. This was said on May 28 at a meeting of the Council of the Republic Chairman Mikhail Myasnikovich with a US delegation.

It included representatives of the US Congress, the fund "Spiritual Diplomacy" and ex-players of the National Basketball Association.

Mikhail Myasnikovich noted a fruitful parliamentary dialogue established between the two countries. In the future, the sides need to develop trade and economic cooperation.

Michael Morgulis, fund manager of Spiritual Diplomacy, Appointed Honorary Consul of the Republic of Belarus in the State of Florida:
A new relationship between the United States and Belarus have begun. We have been working on this for many years and, as we say, step by step, have got many political leaders to reconsider their position. Now they consider Belarus as a perfect and loyal friend, as I wrote in one of my articles.

Immediately after the meeting, member of the US House of Representatives Steve Pearce read an hour-long lecture for the senators, as well as teachers and students of the Belarusian State University and the Academy of Public Administration under the aegis of the President.

The US Congressmen appreciate the peacekeeping role of Belarus in the settlement of the Ukrainian conflict.

Steve Pierce, member of the House of Representatives of Congress, New Mexico:
Of course, the United States appreciates the peacekeeping mission of Belarus in the settlement of the Ukrainian conflict. Our country is ready to join the process. We will discuss all this in the Congress, after our delegation returns to America. I believe that your president serves as a connecting link between the two countries. Belarus also became a peacekeeping platform because our head of state knows the situation and the position of all the parties.
