Belarus and Austria speak in favor of building bridges in Europe, not new dividing lines. This was stated by Minister of Foreign Affairs of Belarus, Vladimir Makei, following the talks with Federal Minister for Europe, Integration and Foreign Affairs of Austria, Karin Kneisl. Today, Austria holds the position of one of the leading investment partners of Belarus and plays an important role in the modernization of a number of sectors of the economy of our country. The day before in Minsk a new office of the Austrian Embassy was solemnly opened. The building will also house the country's economic representative office.
