Belarus president wants Union State proceedings to produce more tangible effect

MINSK, 9 March (BelTA) – Belarus has nothing against organizing the next session of the Supreme State Council of the Union State of Belarus and Russia but the session participants have to make decisions on a number of specific subjects. Belarus President Alexander Lukashenko made the statement during the government conference held on 9 March to discuss topical aspects of the country’s development, BelTA has learned.

Alexander Lukashenko said: “Taking care of the matters that we always raise before sessions of the Supreme State Council of the Union State, I would like the prime minister and the minister of foreign affairs to accomplish a concrete task: we have to prepare the agenda of the session and make part of the agenda the fundamental issues that need to be addressed today.”

“We shouldn’t convert a session of the Supreme State Council, of which I am the chairman, into just another session arranged for the session’s sake where people get together, look at each other, have some snacks, and depart without resolving problems,” stressed the Belarusian leader.

Alexander Lukashenko gave instructions to prepare the agenda of the session and include concrete most important matters of bilateral relations as well as a draft resolution that has to be agreed and initialed during the session. “We don’t have to headbutt each other during the session. We have absolutely nothing against arranging a session of the Supreme State Council. Since we take turns, the session is supposed to take place in Moscow. I would like the agenda to contain 3-4 items at most. Instead of 25 items that we often blaze through during such sessions,” said the head of state.
