Belarus president offers Zimbabwe trucks, tractors on state visit

Belarus President Alexander Lukashenko and Zimbabwe president

Belarusian President Alexander Lukashenko on Tuesday offered Zimbabwe more tractors, combine harvesters and trucks during a visit to the southern African country, a fellow ally of Russia.

Belarus and Zimbabwe cooperate closely, especially in agriculture, and Lukashenko said the offer to Harare was part of a farm mechanization programme worth around $66 million.

The Belarus president, a staunch supporter of Russia, has been received with pomp and fanfare for the three-day state visit which started on Monday.

Zimbabwe has not condemned Russia for invading Ukraine, calling for dialogue like many other African countries.
