Ambassadors of 11 states present credentials to Belarus President

Belarus can provide foreign partners with access to the huge market of the Eurasian Economic Union, said President Alexander Lukashenko on May 2 at the ceremony of receiving credentials from the ambassadors of foreign countries, which was held in the Palace of Independence.

In foreign policy, Belarus has proved its ability to establish a mutually beneficial dialogue and adequately respond to the challenges of our time. Belarus relies on constructiveness and openness. This is confirmed by the introduction this year of a visa-free regime for citizens of 80 countries.

Alexander Lukashenko, President of Belarus:
In the annual State of the Nation Address I clearly outlined the ways of development of the country and the improvement of citizens' well-being. Our foreign policy is primarily aimed at achieving this very goal. Currently, Belarus is chairing the Central European Initiative. Thanks to this, we have new opportunities for broader involvement of Belarus in European integration processes. It is no accident that the promotion of compatibility in Great Europe was chosen as the title topic of the Belarusian presidency. You would probably agree that in the context of the current unstable situation and unprecedented challenges, it is of particular importance.

This year is also significant in that the session of the Parliamentary Assembly of the Organization for Security and Cooperation in Europe will be held in Minsk. The event is important for our country, and for all of Europe. It is planned to discuss the strengthening mutual trust and cooperation in the OSCE region during that session. Receiving this high-ranking event Belarus has the opportunity to begin a constructive dialogue with representatives of many European countries.

Belarus is in a position to provide foreign partners with access to the huge market of the Eurasian Economic Union. This, undoubtedly, increases its attractiveness in the trade, economic and investment plans.

Today, ambassadors of 11 states presented credentials to the Belarusian head of state. At the end of the ceremony, Alexander Lukashenko wished the diplomats success in carrying out their mission, as well as interesting and fruitful work.
