Matyushevsky: Belarus, EU ready to take steps towards each other

VIENNA, 24 May (BelTA) – Belarus and the European Union are ready to take steps towards each other, Belarus First Deputy Prime Minister Vasily Matyushevsky told reporters on the sidelines of the European-Belarusian Investment Forum in Vienna when asked by BelTA about the nature of the dialogue between Belarus and the EU.

“Belarus and the EU hear each other. The atmosphere is that of openness, understanding and willingness to move towards each other and do something, which is important,” Vasily Matyushevsky noted.

He stressed that the dialogue will be beneficial only when there is a specific result. “We have many arrangements. I think we will tell more about them in the near future.
