Belarus, Russia favor multiple vectors principle in foreign policy

MINSK, 16 May (BelTA) – Belarus and Russia are in favor of the multiple vectors principle in foreign policy, BelTA learned from Russian Minister of Foreign Affairs Sergei Lavrov on 16 May.

Sergei Lavrov made the statement in response to mass media speculations about Belarus allegedly turning towards the West. “As far as foreign policy orientation is concerned, our countries share the same view: we favor the multiple vectors principle,” said the Russian Minister of Foreign Affairs.

In his words, Belarus and Russia would like to cooperate with all the countries, which are in turn ready to work together on the basis of equality and mutual benefits. “We have no issues in that regard,” stressed Sergei Lavrov.

The working visit of the Russian Minister of Foreign Affairs to Belarus began on 15 May. Sergei Lavrov met with Belarus President Alexander Lukashenko. He also discussed topical aspects of Belarusian-Russian cooperation, joint work in various formats, primarily the Eurasian Economic Union, the Commonwealth of Independent States, and the Collective Security Treaty Organization, with representatives of the Belarusian Ministry of Foreign Affairs.
