Savinykh said the relations between Turkey and Belarus, two countries with commonly-shared traditional values, were “entering a new stage”.
“It is easy for us to work together. I am sure that a very bright future is awaiting our relations,” he said.
“[It is] a very important new era in our relations. […] We have a very active dialogue on the level of the heads of state, on the level of presidents," he added.
Savinykh’s remarks came ahead of Prime Minister Binali Yildirim’s two-day official visit to Belarus on Wednesday. Yildirim is scheduled to have a one-to-one meeting with his Belarussian counterpart Andrei Kobyakov. Delegations from both sides are also expected to meet.
The Turkish premier is also expected to meet Belarussian President Alexander Lukashenko during his visit.
Savinykh termed Yildirim’s visit as a “new milestone”.
“We believe this is a very important visit. In fact, it is a very serious follow-up for the visit of your president Recep Tayyip Erdogan to Minsk in November 2016,” he said.
Erdogan’s visit to Belarus was the first presidential visit from Turkey to Belarus.
“This visit of the prime minister is a very good chance to review the process of fulfillment of the agreements achieved at a presidential level and take further steps toward developing the economic relations between two countries,” the Belarussian ambassador said, adding that, with these visits happening, he could now anticipate a lot of other visits to take place.
“For example, we are talking about the possibility of the Belarussian foreign minister visiting Turkey in April.”
