Belarusian President Aleksandr Lukashenko expressed gratitude to Russian President Vladimir Putin for facilitating the use of Russian seaport capacities for Belarusian cargoes during a meeting in Moscow on April 11, according to reports from BelTA.

“I appreciate your support on the ports. We are working. We are looking into other ports. The Russian ports are helping us to ship products. In a word, there is no such thing as goods lying on the shore and us being unable to ship them,” Lukashenko stated during the meeting.

He elaborated, mentioning that Belarus is utilizing ports in St. Petersburg, Murmansk, and the Far East for its trade operations. “In the north, too,” Vladimir Putin added, indicating the extent of cooperation between the two countries.

Lukashenko highlighted the promising prospects of the Northern Sea Route, expressing satisfaction with the ongoing shipments along this route. “We have already shipped goods along the Northern Sea Route. Several thousand tonnes have already been delivered. It’s very convenient for our manufacturers. Therefore, your support has been essential for us,” Lukashenko affirmed.

The exchange between the two leaders underscores the close economic ties and cooperation between Belarus and Russia, particularly in the realm of transportation and trade facilitation.

As Belarus continues to explore avenues for enhancing its trade routes and logistical capabilities, cooperation with Russia in utilizing seaport capacities remains a crucial aspect of its economic strategy. With ongoing support and collaboration, both countries aim to further strengthen their economic partnership and foster mutual prosperity.

Stay tuned for further developments as Belarus and Russia continue to explore avenues for enhancing their bilateral relations and economic cooperation.
