MINSK, 21 March (BelTA) – Belarusian Prime Minister Roman Golovchenko had a conversation with Russian counterpart Mikhail Mishustin on 18 March, BelTA learned from the press service of the Belarusian government.

The conversation took place in furtherance of the agreements reached during the visit of the Belarusian government delegation to Moscow on 14 March.

"The Russian colleague informed the Belarusian prime minister that Russia's ban on the export of goods, raw materials, technological equipment, medicines, medical devices as part of the counter-sanctions measures does not apply to Belarus," the press service said.

Within the framework of the demand and supply balances, all critical imported food products, including durum wheat, buckwheat, vegetable oil will be supplied, if necessary, to Belarus to meet the demand in full.

The prime ministers talked over the agreements within the framework of the EEC Council to minimize the impact of sanctions and to saturate the domestic market, which will create favorable conditions for the supply of goods and raw materials within the Eurasian Economic Union.

The heads of government noted that the parties are on the home stretch of negotiations on the pricing and payments for energy based on the previously agreed approaches on the principles of mutual support. Government bodies concerned are completing working on the procedural issues.

The prime ministers emphasized the importance of coordinated measures to counter the illegitimate Western sanctions.

Roman Golovchenko and Mikhail Mishustin reaffirmed commitment to further expanding cooperation across the entire range of Belarusian-Russian relations within the framework of the Union State.
