Belarus ready to further cooperation with Venezuela: president

Belarus is ready to implement all agreements with Venezuela and to further cooperation with Venezuela in all aspects, Belorussian President Alexander Lukashenko said on Monday.

In his meeting with visiting Venezuelan Foreign Minister Nicolas Maduro, Lukashenko said, "we are ready to implement all agreements reached during our latest meeting with my friend ( Venezuelan President Hugo Chavez)."

Lukashenko also stressed he is ready to discuss any new proposal to promote bilateral relations between the two countries.

Maduro said he would like to present several issues as a continuation of Chavez's visit to Belarus, adding that "the agreements reached in the energy sector have already received their development."

Belorussian Deputy Prime Minister Vladimir Semashko also held talks with Maduro over issues of common concern.

According to Maduro, three Belorussian ministers will visit Venezuela in mid-November to discuss cooperation on industry, agriculture and construction sectors.

In October, Chavez paid a visit to Minsk and held talks with Belorussian officials. The two sides issued several documents, including a crucial oil contract between Belorussian Oil Company JV and Petroleos de Venezuela for the supply of 30 million tones of oil in 2011 to 2013.
