Kobyakov: A lot yet to do to make CIS stronger

The Belarusian head of government noted that the CIS states have to specify the jurisdiction of the CIS agencies, optimize and improve performance of power-wielding agencies, ensure frugal and effective usage of financial resources.

Andrei Kobyakov pointed out that participants of the current meeting of the CIS heads of government would discuss ways of implementing the decisions on the CIS’ future operation that the CIS heads of state made during the Bishkek summit.

“The heads of state gave us a clear signal where we should move to enhance our integration association,” said the Prime Minister. “Today we are going to take a look at the first documents meant to implement the decisions of the CIS Heads of State Council to adapt the CIS to modern reality.”

According to Andrei Kobyakov, every meeting in the format of the Commonwealth of Independent States confirms its intended use. “It is a platform for conducting multilateral negotiations and for making mutually beneficial decisions on all matters,” he stressed.
