Pakistan, Belarus to develop inter-parliamentary cooperation

Pakistan is interested in developing closer ties with Belarus. This was stated by Pakistani Prime Minister Nawaz Sharif at the meeting with the heads of both chambers of the Belarusian parliament.

The meeting participants touched on cooperation in economy and humanitarian sphere. Cooperation on the parliamentary level was also reviewed. 

Nawaz Sharif, Prime Minister of the Islamic Republic of Pakistan:
Pakistan values ​​relations with Belarus. And Alexander Lukashenko's visit to our country laid the foundation for bilateral cooperation. Pakistan and Belarus both have a bicameral structure of parliament. We need to establish cooperation between the upper and lower chambers. Pakistan is interested in developing closer relations in the industry, the defense sector and culture.

Co-operation at the parliamentary level is an additional incentive in the development of the bilateral relations. The National Assembly of Belarus, the parliament, has established a working group for cooperation with the parliament of Pakistan. Lawmakers from the South Asian country will in the near future arrive in Belarus. The parties also discussed concrete business proposals and conditions for the implementation of mutually beneficial projects.  

Mikhail Myasnikovich, Chairman of the Council of the Republic of the National Assembly of the Republic of Belarus:
Today commodity and investment cooperation is constrained by insufficient solvency of companies. The scale could be increased through the use of outsourcing services. In fact, thus we offer your side leasing involving goods, which does not require large investment and one-time costs from your side.

Vladimir Andreichenko, Chairman of the House of Representatives of the National Assembly of the Republic of Belarus:
The House of Representatives will take control of the process of implementation of internal procedures in line with the documents signed. All international treaties subject to the ratification will be considered on a priority basis.
