Priorities of the foreign policy of the Republic of Belarus

Belarus adheres to common approaches to development of relations with all its foreign partners based on equitable and mutually respectful dialogue. At the same time, like any other state, our country concentrates its foreign policy efforts on a number of most important and advantageous vectors.

The strategic allied cooperation on the basis of the Agreement on Establishment of the Union State of Belarus and Russia is built with the Russian Federation.

The relations of all-weather and comprehensive strategic partnership are developed with the People’s Republic of China.

Consistently advancing the ideas of integration, Belarus takes an active and constructive position in integration unities in the post-Soviet space – the Eurasian Economic Union (EAEU), the Commonwealth of Independent States, and the Collective Security Treaty Organization (CSTO).

Belarus has completed internal state procedures in line with its obligations to gain the status of a member state of the Shanghai Cooperation Organization.

Belarus has submitted an official application to join the BRICS format as a participant.

The cooperation with the countries of the “far arc” of the Belarusian foreign policy – states of Asia, Africa and Latin America – steadily gains more importance.

Due to unprecedented political and economic pressure of the European Union, the U.S. and other Western countries on Belarus, partnership and mutually beneficial relations with them have transformed into harsh confrontation. Nevertheless, Belarus remains open to dialogue with Western countries in order to find a way to a positive shift to cooperation, primarily in economic, trade and investment spheres.

Multilateral diplomacy is an important direction of Belarus’ foreign policy. Our country aims to contribute to solution of global problems, counteraction to contemporary threats and challenges. Traditionally it takes an active part in the UN and other international organizations’ activities, generates approaches and initiatives that offer a uniting agenda for all members of international community, promote dialogue and help to bridge the dividing lines.
