BRUSSELS, 14 May (BelTA) – Belarus is in favor of overcoming the contradictions that exist in Russia-EU relations. Belarusian Minister of Foreign Affairs Vladimir Makei made the relevant statement during the high-level conference held on 14 May on the occasion of the 10th anniversary of the European Union's Eastern Partnership Initiative (EaP), BelTA has learned.

Vladimir Makei said: “The ongoing confrontation and contradictions between the East and the West, between Russia and the European Union represent a problem for us because we are situated between the two major camps. We suffer due to this confrontation and would like to avoid it.”

In his words, for the sake of overcoming contradictions between major blocs Belarus is committed to the integration of integrations. “In our opinion, it could somehow unite the two integration processes in our region – the Eurasian one and the European one,” the diplomat added.
