Meeting with Mongolia’s Minister of Foreign Affairs

Belarus can develop a dairy cluster in Mongolia, Belarus Prime Minister Andrei Kobyakov said as he met with Mongolia’s Minister of Foreign Affairs Damdin Tsogtbaatar.

“Given the attention that the governments of our countries attach to agriculture, cooperation in crop production, animal husbandry, and veterinary medicine holds great promise. Currently, we are studying the possibility of implementing a comprehensive project to set up Mongolia’s first dairy cluster, Andrei Kobyakov said. The Belarusian side is also ready to share modern storage, processing and agricultural production technologies.

Moreover, Belarus would like to increase supplies of farm machines and special-purpose equipment, and also passenger buses, utility vehicles, equipment and technologies to Mongolia.

The prime minister suggested industrial cooperation projects. The Belarusian side is ready to set up joint ventures with Mongolian partners to produce machinery engineering goods.

There is a mutual interest in cooperation in the prevention of emergency situations, and humanitarian cooperation: science, education, culture and sport.

Andrei Kobyakov stressed that Belarus pays special attention to the development of relations with countries in the Asia-Pacific region and considers Mongolia as a promising partner. “In 2017 we marked the 25th anniversary of the establishment of diplomatic relations between our two countries. It is safe to say that for the past quarter of a century we have maintained the ties of friendship, mutual respect and partnership, thus laying a good foundation for comprehensive cooperation in the future,” the Belarusian head of government said.

“It is obvious that there are many untapped opportunities for cooperation between the two countries and the goal of the two governments is not to miss them, to create the conditions for turning them into specific mutually beneficial economic projects. We are prepared to discuss any areas of cooperation,” Andrei Kobyakov said.

Mongolia’s Minister of Foreign Affairs Damdin Tsogtbaatar noted that Mongolia values its long-standing relations with Belarus, and is ready to further develop cooperation.
