Interregional relations named key to success of Belarusian-Russian integration

Interregional relations named key to success of Belarusian-Russian integration

MINSK, 19 June (BelTA) – Interregional relations remain the key to the success of the Belarusian-Russian integration, Belarusian President Alexander Lukashenko said during the meeting of the Supreme State Council of the Belarus-Russia Union State in Minsk on 19 June, BelTA has learned.

Interregional ties remain the key to the success of our integration. More than 80 regins of the Russian Federation maintain trade and economic relations with Belarus. Three hundred agreements on cooperation have been signed between regions and municipalities concluded. Joint forums of regions of Belarus and Russia have been held since 2014. The next forum will be held in Mogilev in October this year,” the head of state said.

Alexander Lukashenko has renewed his invitation to Russian President Vladimir Putin to attend this forum.

The Belarusian president noted that life never stands still and we should keep moving forward. One of the key items on today's agenda is the adoption of the priority goals of the Union State development for the coming five years. “In order to meet the priority goals we should engage all government bodies of the Union State. I am convinced that only together can we overcome the challenges brought about by the international situation. This approach dovetails well with the principles of our integration project,” the Belarusian leader said.
