Makei: President wants proactive person as Belarus’ new ambassador to Russia

MINSK, 4 September (BelTA) – Belarus president wants to see a self-starter in the capacity of the country’s new ambassador to Russia, Belarusian Minister of Foreign Affairs Vladimir Makei said in an interview with the Belarus 1 TV channel, BelTA has learned.

“The president wants to see a dynamic person in this position, someone who would not only continue the work carried out by the previous ambassador, but would also give a new impetus to cooperation with specific regions and federal authorities of Russia in general. This person should actively interact with the Eurasian Economic Commission that also has an important role in the paradigm of our interstate relations,” the minister said.

In his words, the work is now underway to find the appropriate candidates; some have already been proposed to the president. “I was told that some candidates were quite acceptable. At the same time I was advised to look further and more attentively. A task was set to finalize this matter in the nearest future, so that the president could make the final decision,” Vladimir Makei said.

He also spoke about forthcoming Belarus-Russia highest-level talks involving the governments of the two countries. “The president set a task to get ready for a really meaningful conversation with the Russian side. I am convinced that this might be a vehement, but very constructive conversation that will enable us to resolve issues that remain on our agenda today,” Vladimir Makei noted.
