A delegation of the Serbian Armed Forces headed by Defense Minister Aleksandar Vulin is on an official visit to Belarus on 19-21 February, BelTA learned from the Belarusian Defense Ministry.

“Belarusian Defense Minister Viktor Khrenin held talks with the head of the Serbian Defense Ministry. The parties exchanged views on current international security issues, and reviewed the current state of bilateral military cooperation and prospects for its development,” the ministry said.

The Serbian delegation is set to meet with the state secretary of the Security Council of Belarus and the leadership of the State Authority for Military Industry and to take part in the ceremonial events dedicated to the Fatherland Defenders and Armed Forces Day of the Republic of Belarus.

On February 19, the delegation of the Russian region visited one of the specialized enterprises of the Minsk region.

The guests got acquainted with the technology of growing vegetables and flowers. The greenhouse farms are developing now in the northern Russia region, despite difficult climatic conditions. Therefore, the Belarusian experience can be very useful. Arkhangelsk Region is also interested in purchasing finished products. Meat and dairy products from Minsk Region are purveyed to the Russian region already.

Belarus President Aleksandr Lukashenko has sent greetings to the staff of the Yanka Kupala State University of Grodno as it marks its 80th anniversary, BelTA learned from the press service of the Belarusian leader.

The success of the university is attributed to the team's efforts to preserve the best traditions of Belarusian education, constant improvement and novel approaches, the head of state noted.

“Today the university is by right called one of the country's best higher learning institutions. It is a regional hub for research, innovations and creativity. Its high status and good international standing are due to professional achievements of many generations of graduates,” the message reads.

The president expressed confidence that professional excellence and dedication of the staff, talent and thirst for knowledge of students will always serve the strategic goals of the country, namely the intellectual growth of the nation, training of specialists with a strategic mindset and determination to work for the benefit of Belarus.

The Belarusian State University is presenting R&D products during the international exhibition Belarus-Egypt: Forward-Looking Partnership. The exhibition is taking place in the new administrative capital of Egypt, the university's press service told BelTA.

The Belarusian R&D products are represented in the sphere of aerospace technologies, pharmaceutics, veterinary science, food industry, instrument making, automation of industrial processes, and ecology. In particular, a number of Belarusian antitumor medications have been put on display in Egypt. Designed to treat malignant tumors, these hydrogels contain immobilized cytostatic agents and are to be implanted into the site of the removed tumor. The drugs cause the death of cancerous cells, prevent metastases, and help reduce the toxic impact on the human body.

The Belarusian State University also put on display a high-temperature optical thermograph IT-3SM. It is designed to measure the temperature of hot objects within the range of 900-1,300C. The instrument can be used as part of commercial and experimental plants in order to continuously monitor the temperature of metals during forging, die stamping, rolling, and tuning operations. Visitors can also see a series of veterinary biological preparations designed for treating and preventing diseases in agricultural animals and pets. Those are multifunctional pharmaceutical products that simultaneously combat viruses and bacteria in addition to modulating the immune response.

The innovative products of the Belarusian State University are on display as part of the collective booth set up to showcase Belarusian R&D and innovative products.

В УО «Несвижский государственный колледж имения Якуба Коласа» прошел четвертый этап республиканской акции «Безопасность – в каждый дом».

18 декабря в ГУО «Островский учебно-педагогический комплекс детский сад - средняя школа» состоялось общешкольное родительское собрание, в котором принял участие начальник Несвижского районного отдела по чрезвычайным ситуациям Виталий Вячеславович Бокун.

С целью снижения количества пожаров и гибели людей от них, с третьего февраля на территории Несвижского района проходит месячник пожарной безопасности.

Participants in the next meeting of the Expert Community project “Coronavirus: Economy of Fear” in BelTA's press center projected the changes in the global market due to the COVID-19 situation.

According to Aleksei Avdonin, an analyst at the Belarusian Institute for Strategic Studies (BISI), the United States, European countries can use the situation with coronavirus to explain their desire to reduce the presence of Chinese companies on the national markets. At the same time there is competition for Africa. “We can say that the fight for the African continent has begun. Many companies, both European and American, are redeploying their manufacturing facilities from China to Africa. This has been going on for the last five to seven years,” the analyst recalled.

China itself has been active in the African market for a long time. Africa appreciates the contribution of Chinese companies to their economy and are unlikely to refuse further cooperation, said Yulia Abukhovich, a senior lecturer of the International Relations Department at the Academy of Public Administration under the aegis of Belarus President. “They invest real money, make investments, build social infrastructure, hospitals, etc.,” the expert said. She did not rule out that in the wake of the events with COVID-19 there will be some redistribution of markets. However, she refused to make more specific predictions, calling it a futile undertaking.

The dean of the International Relations Department at Belarusian State University, Doctor of Historical Sciences, Professor Viktor Shadursky urged not to exaggerate the influence of the United States and its allies on the global market. “The world is much bigger than the United States. We need to understand that many countries are waiting for Chinese investment, the Chinese presence," he said, naming Belarus among them. It is hard to imagine that the country, hosting the industrial park Great Stone, will be interested in reducing China's presence on its market, Viktor Shadursky added.

Lukashenko off to Egypt on official visit

Belarus President Aleksandr Lukashenko is heading to Egypt on an official visit. The plane with the Belarusian head of state onboard has departed Minsk National Airport, BelTA has learned.

On 19 February, Aleksandr Lukashenko will hold talks with Egypt President Abdel Fattah el-Sisi in Cairo. The heads of state will review progress in implementing the agreements reached during the visit of the Egyptian leader to Minsk in summer 2019, as well as cooperation prospects in trade, economy and humanitarian affairs. The presidents will also discuss cooperation on the international arena, regional and global security. The talks are expected to result in a package of bilateral documents.

Aleksandr Lukashenko is set to have a series of meetings. Together with his Egyptian counterpart he will go on a tour to Egypt's new administrative capital located 45km to the east of Cairo. The facility will be hosting an exhibition of Belarusian-Egyptian research projects, advanced technology, high-tech products and large-size equipment.

A session of the Belarus-Egypt Business Cooperation Council will be held on the sidelines of the visit.

The Ministry of Foreign Affairs of Belarus is disappointed by the decision of the Council of the EU to prolong the European Union's restrictive measures against Belarus for another year, Anatoly Glaz, Head of the Information and Digital Diplomacy Office, Press Secretary of the Belarusian Ministry of Foreign Affairs, told BelTA.

“We are disappointed by the decision of the Council of the EU to maintain the restrictive measures of the European Union against Belarus for another year. We believe that these restrictions are an ungrounded throwback to the past and manifestation of political inertia in the EU's approaches to building a dialog with Belarus,” the spokesman said.

According to Anatoly Glaz, the Belarus-EU relations have advanced much more in recent years than in the previous decade of sanctions. “We are convinced that the EU itself is fully aware that the ritualistic prolongation of the restrictive measures against Belarus does not yield any positive results,” he added.

Belarus again calls on the European Union to drop the sanction-related cliches that impede a normal dialog and cooperation in the bilateral format and joint efforts to combat common threats in our region.

“We remain committed to building truly good neighborly and partner relations with the European Union, including in some sensitive matters. We call on the EU to keep expanding the political dialog with Belarus, including in the context of pragmatic regional cooperation. We hope that in the near future the relations between Belarus and Europe will be absolutely free from discrimination,” the foreign ministry representative said.
