Lukashenko reveals details of Belarus-Russia trade dispute talks

MINSK, 29 December (BelTA) – Belarusian President Alexander Lukashenko unveiled some details of his talks with Russian President Vladimir Putin regarding the delivery of Belarusian products to Russia as he talked to reporters on 29 December, BelTA has learned.

Alexander Lukashenko told about the results of the recent talks with Vladimir Putin which focused on the problems with the delivery of Belarusian products. Such a situation may happen in the future again. Life with no disputes sounds like a fairytale, the Belarusian leader noted.

The heads of state had a tough and business-like conversation. “It was not the first discussion of this kind. It does not mean that there is antagonism between us. We are friends and we can openly discuss the things that we are concerned about,” the head of state said.

Disputes will emerge due to the conflict of interests with Russian manufacturers who view Belarusian companies as their primary rivals, Alexander Lukashenko believes. “They cannot compete with us in terms of quality, price, the level of organization. That is why they resort to such administrative, sometimes lawless methods,” the President emphasized.

Alexander Lukashenko is convinced that the format of the Union State in the relations between Belarus and Russia is still up-to-date. “The Eurasian Economic Union should do a lot to reach this depth of integration which exists between Belarus and the Russian Federation,” the Belarusian leader stated.
