US-Belarus trade turnover amounts to $700 mln despite sanctions

Belarus imports complex technical equipment for technological modification of its enterprises from the United States. "The balance is standing in the U.S. credit, we import much more than export to the U.S. market, BELTA quotes Savinykh. Our export is partially limited because of the sanctions although we have much to offer."

Back in 2006, the U.S. imposed visa and financial limitations on some Belarusian officials and several Belarusian enterprises. This was the reaction to human rights violations and political repressions in Belarus.
