MOSCOW, 3 October (BelTA) – Belarus and the Russian Federation both succeed in countering sanctions and continue strengthening cooperation, Belarusian Prime Minister Roman Golovchenko said as he met with his Russian counterpart Mikhail Mishustin in Moscow on 3 October, BelTA has learned.
“Intensive contacts at all levels that we observe today confirm the interest in maintaining the necessary momentum in bilateral relations and rapid development of coordinated approaches to counter the external pressure. In the course of our meetings, we have repeatedly said that only through joint efforts can we resist these insane sanctions, aimed at the destruction of our states. As we can see, these are not just words. We do not only resist but, under these extremely difficult conditions, successfully develop mutual trade, strengthen production relations and develop new transport and logistics chains,” said Roman Golovchenko.
“Today, under unprecedented political and economic pressure, our integration has passed a serious test, proving its effectiveness and readiness to cope with any challenges and threats,” the prime minister said.
According to Roman Golovchenko, the presidents of Belarus and Russia gave specific instructions following the results of the meeting in Sochi last week. “Our task is to provide their unconditional practical realization,” he added.
