Belarus foreign minister to visit Latvia on 24 July


Belarusian Minister of Foreign Affairs Vladimir Makei will pay a working visit to Latvia on 24 July, the Belarusian Ministry of Foreign Affairs said on its Facebook page, BelTA has learned.

In Riga, Vladimir Makei will hold talks with his Latvian counterpart Edgars Rinkevics.

Belarus President Aleksandr Lukashenko was expected to visit Latvia in April. However, due to the outbreak of coronavirus, the visit was postponed.

In March, Aleksandr Lukashenko and Latvian President Egils Levits had a telephone conversation at the initiative of the Latvian side. The heads of state discussed the main aspects of bilateral cooperation, mainly trade and economic cooperation. The neighboring countries are primarily interested in cargo transportation, energy transit, industrial cooperation.

At the end of June, Aleksandr Lukashenko congratulated Egils Levits on the 65th birthday. The president said he expects to continue working together to strengthen good-neighborly relations, which should be facilitated by the planned high-level contacts. “I hope that we will be able to meet in the hospitable Riga soon to discuss ways to deepen cooperation between Belarus and Latvia,” the Belarusian head of state stressed.
