Lukashenko: No lack of understanding in Belarus-Russia relations

MINSK, 25 February (BelTA) – There is no misunderstanding or mistrust in Belarus-Russia relations. Belarus President Alexander Lukashenko made the statement after the session of the Supreme State Council on 25 February, BelTA has learned.

Alexander Lukashenko said that during the session they had talked about results of the program on coordinated foreign policy actions of Belarus and Russia in 2014-2015 and adopted a new program to guide the work of the Belarusian and Russian ministries of foreign affairs in 2016-2017.

“The absence of any misunderstanding, mistrust in Belarus-Russia interaction in the international scene is the best way to demonstrate the Belarusian-Russian unity and strategic partnership in these complicated times,” noted the Belarusian leader.

The session of the Supreme State Council touched upon international and regional security matters. According to Alexander Lukashenko, they have worked out a precise action plan for the Belarusian-Russian regional army group in compliance with modern standards.

“We spoke in favor of building up cooperation across the board, primarily for the sake of expanding and advancing integration processes,” said the Belarusian head of state.

In his opinion, the two countries have a major potential. “Considering this, the Union State should act as a powerful platform for advancing the entire spectrum of mutual cooperation and for providing effective aid to the establishment of the Eurasian Economic Union,” noted the Belarusian leader.

Alexander Lukashenko said he believes that the current session of the Supreme State Council once again confirmed the exceptional importance of the Union State idea. “Time and history put every thing in its proper place. We now stronger recognize the unfading value of Belarusian-Russian friendship,” said the Belarusian head of state. In his opinion, in their time the presidents of Belarus and Russia made the right decision to keep the Union State project. “It didn’t impede anyone while it pushed us to the forefront,” noted Alexander Lukashenko. He added that many matters are taken care of within the framework of the Union State. These approaches will come in handy in any integration association, including the Eurasian Economic Union.

“We hope that the agreements reached at the top level will allow us to rapidly advance our cooperation and to overcome any contradictions and differences of opinion as partners, in the spirit of purely allied relations just the way the Union State should work,” stressed the Belarus President.
