Belarus and Austria should enhance bilateral cooperation, first of all, in trade, Belarus President Alexander Lukashenko said during the talks with Federal Chancellor of Austria. Previously Sebastian Kurz, the then minister of foreign affairs, visited Belarus twice. The talks at the Palace of Independence in Minsk are another step to outline future prospects for cooperation. Federal Chancellor of Austria is also in favor of long-term cooperation. Sebastian Kurz hopes Belarus President Alexander Lukashenko will visit Austria within the next six months.
