Unwavering partnership between Belarus, Russia underscored

SLUTSK, 25 January (BelTA) – Belarus and Russia have always been and will be close partners. Head of the Belarus President Administration Natalya Kochanova made the statement as she met with workers of the Slutsk-based sugar factory on 25 January, BelTA has learned.

The sugar factory employees asked Natalya Kochanova how the recent problems in Belarus-Russia relations including disputes over food trade and oil and gas deliveries had affected relations between the two countries.

According to Natalya Kochanova, the government is definitely concerned about the situation evolving in Belarusian-Russian relations. “Since we operate within the framework of the integration agreements that we have signed and are obliged to follow,” said the Head of the Belarus President Administration. “Belarus has always honored its commitments to its partners.”

The official noted that Belarus and Russia are busy working to resolve the existing issues. “Just yesterday [Deputy Prime Minister of Belarus] Vladimir Semashko was on another business trip. Negotiations continue,” added Natalya Kochanova.

“Russia is our main partner. They are our brothers. We tightly work together within the framework of integration processes. We have been and will be close partners,” stressed Natalya Kochanova.

In her words, several mass media are fanning the flame and blowing the issues in Belarus-Russia relations out of proportion. “It shouldn’t happen. There are indeed issues in some aspects of our relations and we are working very seriously to address them,” summed up Natalya Kochanova.
