MINSK — Belarus has expressed its support for Saudi Arabia’s bid to host the 2030 World Expo, citing the strong bilateral relations between the two nations.

During a meeting on March 21, Belarusian Minister of Foreign Affairs Sergei Aleinik and Saudi Arabia’s Ambassador Abdulrahman Bin Suleiman Al-Ahmad discussed the development of political dialogue and prospects for expanding trade, economic, and investment cooperation.

The Belarusian government views Saudi Arabia as a strategic partner in the Middle East and values the prospects of expanding economic, trade, and investment cooperation between the two nations.

In a statement, the Belarusian government emphasized the long-standing friendly nature of the bilateral relations between the two countries and expressed confidence that Riyadh would be a competent host for the prestigious event.

The World Expo is widely regarded as the largest global platform for showcasing technological advancements and cultural values that unite humanity.
