She expressed confidence that Belarusian and Russian MPs will not only use the positive experience gained by their predecessors but will also expand cooperation. “We will look for new effective formats, contacts. In any case, the parliamentary dialogue is very important,” Valentina Matviyenko said. The speaker also drew attention to the possibility “to hold the dialogue in a sincere manner, without choosing words.”

The MPs exchange views, talk about problems, discuss approaches and vision of the processes that are taking place in the world. Today's talks in Minsk are held in this manner.
