Constructive Coop. With Tehran Top Priority

The Belarusian prime minister said Minsk attaches great importance to its relations with Tehran.
In a meeting with Foreign Minister Mohammad Javad Zarif in Minsk on Tuesday, Andrei Kobyakov described Iran as the Eastern European country's key partner and predicted a bright future for bilateral cooperation.
He continued, "(Maintaining) constructive cooperation with Iran is a foreign policy priority for Belarus," IRNA reported.
He called Iran a reliable partner, a strong state and a major player in the international arena and expressed gratitude for Tehran's support for the country at international meetings.
Kobyakov said despite the fact that the two states enjoy good cooperation in investment, science and technology, education and culture sectors, but the volume of trade transactions stands at an insignificant level.
The Belarusian official said, "Minsk is prepared to take necessary measures to expand economic cooperation with Iran and take practical steps in this line."
The foreign minister, for his part, highlighted Tehran's resolve for promotion of cooperation with Minsk in various fields to meet the two states' mutual interests.
In a separate development, the foreign minister met with his Belarusian counterpart Vladimir Makei on Tuesday and the two officials discussed a wide range of issues, among them, bilateral cooperation.
The Belarusian foreign minister pointed to the Iranian official's trip to Minsk and said, "The visit is a milestone in expansion of Iran-Belarus cooperation and indicative of both countries' resolve and efforts to improve relations."
