“Over the past two years, You and I have completely transformed our relations, and in fact re-created them. Moreover, during this time we have undertaken more than that had been done in all the previous 25 years. Thus far, the trade turnover between our two countries hardly meets the requirements of the time, and it is important to consistently increase it. Your initiative to connect our two country’s regions for cooperation is the gist of this visit. Mutual trips of the leaders of regions took place, exhibitions and days of culture have been organized. All this makes Your visit to Belarus worthwhile. The fact that the chiefs of regional administrations have concluded a mass of cooperation agreements is the pinnacle. Our mission is to open the ways [for interaction], and we did it”, Alexander Lukashenko suggested.

Shavkat Mirziyoyev, in turn, expressed gratitude for the invitation and hospitality, noting in particular that Uzbekistan attaches priority significance to the enhancement of partnership with Belarus.
