MINSK, 7 June (BelTA) - Sanctions are an additional stimulus for Belarus and Russia to strengthen their economies, Belarusian Deputy Prime Minister Leonid Zayats said as he met with a delegation of Russia's Primorye Territory in Minsk on 7 June, BelTA has learned.

"We see the sanctions imposed by European states, the United States as very serious stimulus to find alternative solutions to strengthen our enterprises, improve the welfare of people and the strength of our states in general," Leonid Zayats said.
