Ambassador of Belarus Sergei Terentiev said on Monday 24/2/2020 the recent visit of President Alexander Lukashenko to Egypt was very fruitful.

Four agreements were signed between the two countries to boost cooperation in the customs and banking sectors, outline a mechanism for political negotiations between their foreign ministries, and implement a government program for higher education and post-graduate studies, the diplomat said in statements to MENA Monday.

Meetings were also held on the fringe of Lukashenko’s visit between Egyptian and Belarus businesspersons, he said.
