SAINT PETERSBURG, 16 June (BelTA) – It is necessary to more closely coordinate the migration policy in the Union State of Belarus and Russia. Prime Minister of Russia Dmitry Medvedev made the relevant statement during the session of the Union State's Council of Ministers in Saint Petersburg on 16 June.
Dmitry Medvedev remarked that Belarus and Russia had already mutually adjusted their migration laws and data is now exchanged between the migration services. At the same time it is necessary to enable a new level of cooperation in control over the arrival and stay of people from third countries in Belarus and Russia. “Their arrival and stay certainly requires a different degree of control. We will have to work a bit more on that in accordance with the agreement we've reached today,” he explained.
“We should think about how we should harmonize future plans on coordinating the migration policy of the Union State in general,” said Dmitry Medvedev.More about Politics
