MINSK, 15 June (BelTA) - Russia and Belarus are the most reliable partners in the former Soviet Union space, Russian Ambassador to Belarus Boris Gryzlov said at the opening of the exhibition to mark the 30th anniversary of diplomatic relations between Belarus and Russia at the Belarusian Ministry of Foreign Affairs on 15 June, BelTA has learned.
“Indeed, 25 June will mark 30 years since diplomatic relations were established between the Russian Federation and the Republic of Belarus. In historical terms, 30 years is not a long period. It is certainly a landmark period for the development of our relations. Thirty years have proved that Russia and Belarus are the most reliable partners in the former Soviet space,” the ambassador said.
He stressed that the countries have unified positions in all international organizations. “Not all CIS countries, unfortunately, show a unified position, which could strengthen the CIS and the CSTO. Russia and Belarus are an example of such unified relations that allow the states formed on the territory of the Soviet Union to dictate their conditions, their position and uphold their interests,” Boris Gryzlov said.
