Our relationship with Belarus

Engagement between New Zealand and Belarus has increased in recent years, including through a visit to Minsk by the Prime Minister’s Special Envoy Jim Bolger in April 2014, regular accreditation visits from our Embassy in Moscow, and the establishment of Belarus’ formal accreditation to Wellington through its embassy in Canberra. New Zealand also hosted inaugural Foreign Ministry Consultations with Belarus in February this year. Two Belarusian business delegations have also visited New Zealand since 2012.
