It is appropriate for Belarus to develop relations with Commonwealth, Ambassador says

With the help of its diplomatic mission in Great Britain Belarus can successfully develop relations with the countries of the Commonwealth (former British Commonwealth), Ambassador Extraordinary and Plenipotentiary of Belarus to the United Kingdom of Great Britain and Northern Ireland Alexander Mikhnevich told reporters on July 24, reported Belta.

"The Commonwealth, with Great Britain in the lead, includes a large and diverse range of countries. This is a huge potential for development of links including with the countries of Africa and Asia," the Ambassador said. "I think we can establish contacts with many of these countries through London."

"I would like to examine this issue more closely with my colleagues. I believe this will give a new impetus to our diplomacy: developing links with the countries where we have a zero presence and know little of the structure of their markets," Alexander Mikhnevich said.
