Abkhazia will deliver wine to Belarus

SUKHUM. Feb 28 (Interfax) - The Abkhaz president reached an agreement on shipments of wines produced in the country to Belarus during his visit to Minsk, Abkhazia's Foreign Minister Inal Ardzinba said.

"We are also discussing other goods being produced in Abkhazia. On the other side are Belarusian goods: dairy products and other commodity positions of a broader spectrum to be supplied to Abkhazia," Ardzinba said in an interview with Rossiya 24 (VGTRK) television channel.

The sides are also discussing other joint projects, including in the sphere of tourism, he said.

Belarusian President Alexander Lukashenko said at the meeting with Abkhaz President Aslan Bzhania in Minsk that he was hoping that bilateral relations between the two countries would develop and not solely in terms of mutual trade but with regard to tourism and travel services being provided.

"Especially after they started introducing all sorts of sanctions against us. Our people want to make trips to the seaside," Lukashenko.

Lukashenko urged for combining efforts to cooperate better in the area of tourism between Belarus and Abkhazia.
