The dictator found a new “strategic partner” in the face of Emmerson Mnangagwa.
Lukashenka and Zimbabwe's President Emmerson Mnangagwa have discussed cooperation between the countries at a meeting in Minsk today.
Lukashenka stressed that Belarus sees a “big scope of work” for Belarus in Zimbabwe and wants to build a strategic partnership with the country, the dictator’s press service reports.
“There is a very close and good relationship between our countries. My administration and the people of Zimbabwe consider the Republic of Belarus as a fraternal country,” – Mnangagva said.
Lukashenka compared the current problems in Zimbabwe with the problems that Belarus experienced more than 20 years ago, and expressed his support.
Lukashenka said that he would visit Zimbabwe with great pleasure, but only after the implementation of “four or five specific projects.”
