Belarus, Russia urged to continue aligning social and humanitarian laws

MINSK, 8 June (BelTA) - Belarus and Russia should continue aligning the legal frameworks governing social and humanitarian issues, Belarusian President Alexander Lukashenko said when speaking at a plenary session of the 3rd Forum of Regions of Russia and Belarus, BelTA has learned.

“We should actively pursue further the harmonization and convergence of the legal frameworks in the social and humanitarian sphere. We need to take into account the high degree of economic integration, common labor market and similar socio-demographic conditions,” the Belarusian President said.

The head of state noted that the healthcare legislation requires deeper harmonization. “The system it is organized may have differences, but we need to regulate the mechanism of equal access to medical services, mutual supplies of medicines and other issues. It is good that the forum is searching for the approaches to these problems,” the Belarusian President believes.

This year’s forum is dedicated to social and humanitarian issues. “We must recognize that a lot has been done in this area. The citizens of our countries have equal rights in the field of working conditions, pay, labor protection, and pensions. We have established the regulatory framework which provides free access to education. We have taken concrete steps to develop the common space in healthcare, culture, sports, tourism,” Alexander Lukashenko stressed.

“It is in Belarus that we started the good tradition of holding forums of regions of Belarus and Russia. The first two held in Minsk and Sochi became the fundamental platforms for constructive dialogue on economic integration, interregional cooperation. These issues were given the utmost attention, including at the level of heads of state,” the Belarusian President said.
