Belarus and Iran can be very useful to each other if they join efforts to resist external pressure and develop the economy, Belarusian President Alexander Lukashenko said on Monday at talks with his Iranian counterpart Ebrahim Raisi in Tehran.

"We've agreed today with the president of Iran, we can be very useful to each other if we really join forces," Lukashenko noted.

According to Lukashenko, he believed that Minsk and Tehran can reach a new level of cooperation with the highest degree of efficiency.

"The experience of my communication with the former presidents of Iran and the negotiations that we have had suggest that the ongoing visit is remarkable as it will offer an opportunity to reach a new stage of our cooperation," the Belarusian leader stressed..

"And this cooperation will be highly efficient. I make such assumptions based on the agreements that we have already reached," Lukashenko added.
