Lukashenko: Belarus committed to agreements with Putin on transit of goods from West to Russia

MINSK, 11 August (BelTA) – Belarus is committed to the agreements with Russian President Vladimir Putin regarding the transit of goods from the West to Russia, Belarus President Alexander Lukashenko said as he met with Prime Minister Mikhail Myasnikovich to receive his report, BelTA has learned.

The meeting focused on the transit of goods from other countries to Russia via the territory of Belarus. Alexander Lukashenko emphasized that in this issue Belarus follows the agreements achieved during the recent phone conversation with Russian President Vladimir Putin. In particular, Vladimir Putin informed Alexander Lukashenko about the economic measures which Russia took in relation to certain categories of products imported from the countries that imposed sanctions against Russian organizations and citizens.

“In the phone talk with the President of Russia we discussed the protection, as he said, of the Russian market. It means that we should fulfill our obligations to protect the Union State market (we have the common customs in the customs space) regarding the transit of goods from the West to Russia via Belarus. As Russia closed its market for certain goods, we should not allow the transit of these products to Russia via Belarus,” the head of state noted.

Alexander Lukashenko said that he gave corresponding instructions to customs bodies.
