Lukashenko: Belarusian-Russian integration is going through an endurance test

MINSK, 25 February (BelTA) – Belarus and Russia are building the Union State in complicated conditions. Belarus President Alexander Lukashenko made the statement during the session of the Supreme State Council on 25 February, BelTA has learned.

“The endurance of our integration is being tested by the global economic instability, a crisis of trust in international relations, escalating armed conflicts and information wars,” noted the Belarusian leader.

At the same time Alexander Lukashenko stressed that the current situation should not affect the placement of priorities in the work of the Union State of Belarus and Russia. Across-the-board cooperation for the benefit of the nations is the top priority.

“The constructive dialogue in politics, economy, security, social and cultural affairs makes us confident that we will reach the common integration goals,” said the Belarusian head of state. Alexander Lukashenko was convinced that the two countries have all the conditions for it.

“During the meeting with the president of Russia in Sochi a short while ago we confirmed our intention to step up Belarusian-Russian interaction in all areas and tackle any emerging problems,” said Alexander Lukashenko. He added that the Supreme State Council looks into the most topical aspects of the Union State development outside the scope of the bilateral relations where such matters are handled in a routine manner.
