Speaking at the meeting, Mr. Victor A. Guminsky, Deputy Chairman of the House of Representatives expressed gratitude to Speaker Rebecca Kadaga for the warm reception accorded to them during the 126th IPU Assembly held in Kampala in 2012.

Guminsky highlighted the importance of this meeting citing his country’s policy to further their levels of cooperation with Africa.

He said it also came on the heels of a meeting held recently between Uganda’s Ambassador to Russia and the Belarus President.

Extending an invitation to the Rt. Hon. Speaker to visit Belarus, Guminsky stated the need to establish working groups between the two countries.

“We wish to start this cooperation with exchange visits of delegations at a high level,” Guminsky added.

Speaker Kadaga thanked the Belarus leader for adhering to one of the goals of the Kampala meet. “Our desire in the 126th IPU was to broaden our Parliamentary relations.”

She highlighted that relations between Belarus and Uganda were very good and needed to be maintained, “But relations between Parliaments are closer,” she said.

Guminsky welcomed the approach of an MOU for mutual benefit. “I believe our countries and Parliaments have a lot to offer each other; We shall not compete but complement each other,” he said.
