Belarus PM calls for joint effort to overcome difficulties, preserve productive agenda in CIS

MINSK, 20 May (BelTA) – Together the CIS countries will be able to not only overcome current difficulties but preserve the productive agenda in the Commonwealth. Prime Minister of Belarus Roman Golovchenko made the statement at a regular videoconference session of the CIS Heads of Government Council on 20 May, BelTA has learned.

Roman Golovchenko said: “Today we live through one of the most complicated periods of development of the Commonwealth of Independent States. The situation around Belarus and Russia is not simple. The West tries to undermine mainstays of our economies and keeps enforcing more and more sanctions, which are unprecedented and illegitimate from the point of view of international law. Unfortunately, their consequences are having an effect on all the CIS states. Manufacturing cooperation gets more complicated. Monetary and financial flows are disrupted. We run into problems with sales, transportation, and aftersales service of products.”

Roman Golovchenko remarked that protective measures at the national level and within the framework of all integration formats are used to counteract the illegal restrictions. The work proceeds most actively in the Union State of Belarus and Russia and in the integration G5. A working group was established as part of the Commonwealth of Independent States in March upon Belarus' initiative for the sake of monitoring the economic situation in the CIS states and for preparing proposals on possible joint measures designed to respond to emerging problems.

“I hope that work on counteracting the policy of sanctions will produce a tangible result for the sake of preventing slowdown of our trade and economic cooperation pace. I am convinced that together we will be able to not only overcome current problems but preserve the productive agenda in our joint work within the framework of the Commonwealth of Independent States,” Roman Golovchenko stressed.
