MOSCOW, 19 November (BelTA) – Prime Minister of Belarus Sergei Rumas is in negotiations with his Russian counterpart Dmitry Medvedev in Moscow, BelTA has learned.
The meeting is held in a one-on-one format without any reporters. After the meeting the heads of government will take part in a session of the Council of Ministers of the Union State of Belarus and Russia. Two more rounds of negotiations are scheduled to take place: an expanded-participation meeting and a working dinner.
The reconciliation of roadmaps on implementing the Belarus-Russia Union State Foundation Treaty is expected to be the main item on the agenda of the talks.
BelTA reported earlier that in early September the prime ministers of Belarus and Russia agreed a draft action program to implement the Union State Treaty and a list of roadmaps. The sides now have to work out 31 roadmaps to implement the action program. The Belarusian and Russian governments intend to present the draft roadmaps for the attention of the presidents by 1 December. The roadmaps will be signed by heads of government agencies while the action program on fulfilling the Union State Treaty will be signed by the heads of state.More about Economy
