Michael Morgulis: Belarus important for Europe in geopolitical sense

A new stage is beginning in the relations between Belarus and the United States, said Honorary Consul of the Republic of Belarus to the USA Michael Morgulis.

The role of Belarus for US and international policy will grow. There are good prospects in economic cooperation, especially in high technologies.

At present, the diplomat's fund is negotiating on the arrival in Belarus for the upcoming forum of young programmers - one of the founders of Apple.

Michael Morgulis, Honorary Consul of the Republic of Belarus in the United States, Head of the Fund "Spiritual Diplomacy":
I call Belarus a gate between East and West. I believe that geopolitically, Belarus is very important not only for Europe, but also for America.

I think Belarus is distinguished by the fact that despite its difficult historical destiny this small country expresses desire to live, create and desire to live in peace. In our stormy sea of ​​life, hatred, bloody clashes it is the island of peace.

Recall that, despite a number of difficulties in the interstate relations of the United States and Belarus, there has recently been a clear positive trend. In particular, the export of Belarusian goods to the USA since the beginning of 2017 has increased by 2.5 times, amounting to $80 million.
