Vladimir Makei and Federica Mogherini exchanged opinions about Belarus-EU cooperation and the work done after the Eastern Partnership Initiative summit, which took place in Brussels in November 2017. The sides discussed the state of affairs with regard to new, tailor-made partnership priorities between the EU and Belarus and agreed to accelerate their completion, which would become an important building block for the bilateral relations.

Apart from that, cooperation in nuclear safety was discussed, in particular, the construction of the Belarusian nuclear power plant near Ostrovets.
