MINSK. Feb 20 (Interfax) - Belarus and Sudan possess "tremendous potential for bilateral economic cooperation, which has practically remained untapped," Belarusian President Alexander Lukashenko said on Tuesday.
A current visit by a Sudanese parliamentary delegation to Belarus will "give an impetus to the intensification of our relations," Lukashenko said at a meeting in Minsk with the delegation leader, lower house speaker Ahmed Ibrahim al-Tahir.
"Sudan occupies a certain place in our foreign policy and foreign economic strategy," Lukashenko said.
He expressed gratitude for an invitation from Sudanese President Omar Hasan al-Bashir for the Belarusian leader to visit Sudan.
"We are working very actively to organize this visit, and I think we will be able to meet in your capital very soon," Lukashenko told Tahir.
