MINSK, 15 May (BelTA) – All the problems in Belarus-Russia cooperation in agriculture are going to be resolved, BelTA learned from Belarusian Agriculture and Food Minister Anatoly Khotko after the joint session of the boards of the Belarusian Agriculture and Food Ministry and the Russian Agriculture Ministry in Minsk on 15 May.

The official said: “During today's meeting we've discussed several matters: interaction in supplies of products, the implementation of indicative balances of supply and demand, matters concerning quality and safety of products. The development of a Union State program on pedigree animal farming was also discussed. Certainly, a number of matters were raised in addition to the ones I've mentioned. The relevant instructions will be given in a routine manner. Our oversight agencies keep in touch. We try to resolve all emerging issues from the two sides. We sincerely and honestly discussed interaction in the sphere of agricultural production and the pooling of resources of the two countries. The meeting was productive. We have issues that need to be addressed. We are going to tightly work with Russian colleagues. Interaction between our countries is very tight and is supported by our heads of state. We will closely follow this policy.”

Russian Agriculture Minister Dmitry Patrushev underlined that Belarus remains Russia's main trade partner in terms of agricultural products. “The trade turnover is on the rise. I am convinced that the figure will only grow higher with the passage of time. During the session of the boards we discussed topical aspects of cooperation of the agriculture ministries. We've come to terms on all the matters. We have virtually no issues left, on which our views are drastically different or we don't maintain a dialogue about it. There are some rough spots but there should be no serious difficulties in communication between brotherly nations,” he remarked.

Anatoly Khotko and Dmitry Patrushev signed a protocol of the joint session of the boards of the Belarusian Agriculture and Food Ministry and the Russian Agriculture Ministry.
