Belarus to ratify Belarus-Bangladesh agreement on visa-free travel for diplomats in autumn

18.07.2013 18:14

MINSK, 18 July (BelTA) – The House of Representatives of the National Assembly is expected to consider the bill on ratification of the agreement between the Government of the Republic of Belarus and the Government of the People's Republic of Bangladesh on the abolition of visas for holders of diplomatic and service passports, BelTA learned from Viktor Fesak, deputy chairman of the commission of international affairs of the House of Representatives.

According to Viktor Fesak, the commission for international affairs has decided to propose the House of Representatives to consider the bill at the autumn session. The agreement with Bangladesh is needed for closer and mutually beneficial cooperation between the two countries. The document was signed in Dhaka on 12 November 2012.

According to the agreement, the holders of the service and diplomatic passports will be exempt from visa requirements for entry, exit or transit. The holders of such passports can stay without a visa in the territory of another state not more than 90 days from the date of entry. This document assumes that a citizen can enjoy such preferential treatment if he does not engage in any work activities on the territory of another state. Viktor Fesak noted that the agreement will give impetus to the development of bilateral ties in various fields, including in the political, trade, economic and cultural areas.

The MP also recalled that Belarus recently hosted a delegation of the Government of the People's Republic of Bangladesh headed by Prime Minister Sheikh Hasina. In general, cooperation between the two countries in the United Nations and of the Non-Aligned Movement has been constructive in recent years. "Our countries have similar positions on key issues on the international agenda, and advocate against the unipolar world," the MP said. In addition, Bangladesh has traditionally supported Belarusian initiatives within the United Nations. Both countries condemn the politicization of human rights issues in the United Nations.

Belarus may supply potash fertilizers, chemical fibers and engineering products to Bangladesh. The two countries can also develop cooperation in the field of education and the military-technical area. There are prospects for opening a Belarusian machinery assembly plant in that country, and other projects.
