Lukashenko: More talks with Russia on sensitive issues are possible

Lukashenko: More talks with Russia on sensitive issues are possible

MINSK, 13 December (BelTA) – Another series of talks with Russia on sensitive issues is quite possible, Belarus President Aleksandr Lukashenko said at the meeting with students and teachers of medical universities on 13 December, BelTA has learned.

“In Saint Petersburg on 20 December (an informal summit of the EAEU). It might be followed by several rounds of talks on sensitive issues with the Russian Federation,” the Belarusian head of state said.

A reminder, Aleksandr Lukashenko will meet with his Russian counterpart Vladimir Putin in Saint Petersburg. Their previous meeting took place in Sochi on 7 December. The talks in various formats with government members in attendance lasted five and a half hours.

In addition to that, on 10 December at the meeting with Head of the Belarus President Administration Igor Sergeyenko and Chair of the Council of the Republic of the National Assembly Natalya Kochanova, the head of state announced plans to hold new meetings with Russia’s top officials. These plans were discussed with Russian Premier Dmitry Medvedev on the same day. “I have just talked to the Russian premier. We have agreed to meet in the run-up to New Year (though it is still unclear how to arrange it taking into consideration my plans in Belarus and his plans in Russia). We will be able to compare notes with the president and the prime minister of Russia. There are some issues that are within the scope of reference of our governments. I would like to discuss some of them with Dmitry Medvedev,” the Belarusian leader said on 10 December.

“He said he would be glad to have an opportunity to meet somewhere. He said that he can come to Minsk. I think we will find a place to hold a meeting. Maybe, another meeting with the Russian president will take place after 20 December. We need to come to terms on the most sensitive issues for our states and economies,” the president added.
