MOSCOW, 11 March (BelTA) - The Belarus-Russia cooperation agenda is not limited to oil supplies, Belarusian Prime Minister Sergei Rumas told the media as he commented on the talks held with Russian counterpart Mikhail Mishustin in Moscow on 11 March, BelTA has learned.

"Journalists have been recently interested, first of all, in oil issues, but in fact today we discussed a wide range of issues of bilateral cooperation,” Sergei Rumas said. "We have a big agenda. It is not limited to oil. Last year's trade with the Russian Federation totaled $36 billion. Although oil and petroleum products do hold an important share of this trade, they do not represent the whole  trade with Russia,” he noted.

According to the Belarusian prime minister, all aspects of bilateral cooperation that each of the parties are concerned with were discussed at the first full-length meeting with Mikhail Mishustin. "In principle, I am satisfied with the results of the negotiations,” Sergei Rumas noted.
