Belarus plans to open an embassy in Nigeria in the near future, Foreign Minister of Belarus Sergei Martynov said in an interview to Belarus-TV Channel.
“Our approach to foreign economic relations is that we need to proceed from simple forms of trade (exports/imports) to more sophisticated forms. We seek to create joint ventures and through them increase our presence in the market,” the minister stressed.
“This is a reflection of the policy that we must advance onto new markets – the countries new to us,” the minister said.
Over the past two years we have discovered, figuratively speaking, 34 new countries. Naturally, that our diplomatic presence moves along with our economic interests,” Sergei Martynov added.
