The Honorary Consulate of Belarus has opened in Spanish Alicante. It will cover several districts of Spain. Alicante is the third most popular city for Belarusians residing in Spain.
Pavel Latushko, Ambassador Extraordinary and Plenipotentiary of the Republic of Belarus in France with concurrent accreditation in the Kingdom of Spain and the Portuguese Republic:
It is symbolic that the opening of the Honorary Consulate in Alicante was held on the eve of the 25th anniversary of the independence of Belarus. An interesting fact is that these days the city of Alicante celebrates the traditional historical feast - the feast of St. John. And in the next few days, we will celebrate traditional Belarusian Midsummer too.
Alfonso Jurado Mesa, Honorary Consul of Belarus in Alicante:
I would like to note that the Consulate is home to all Belarusians in Spain, a hearth and home where Belarusians can come in any situation and in any event. We are ready to render the necessary assistance to all Belarusian citizens in Spain.
