Lavrov: Belarus-Russia dialogue has gained momentum

MOSCOW, 10 November (BelTA) – A Belarusian-Russian political dialogue has noticeably gained pace, Russian Minister of Foreign Affairs Sergey Lavrov said at a meeting of the Russian-Belarusian ministerial collegium in Moscow on 10 November, BelTA has learned.

“Today's event is part of an intensive Belarusian-Russian political dialogue, which has noticeably intensified lately,” Sergey Lavrov said. He called the meeting of the Supreme State Council of the Union State of 4 November momentous. “At this summit our leaders approved a whole package of integration documents, including the Guidelines to Implement the Union State Treaty in 2021-2023 and 28 Union State sectoral programs. They also approved the updated Military Doctrine and the Migration Policy Concept of the Union State. These decisions will pave the way for deeper integration of Russia and Belarus in various fields,” Sergey Lavrov said.

An important role in these agreements is assigned to the foreign ministries of the two countries. According to Sergey Lavrov, a program of coordinated foreign policy measures of Belarus and Russia for the next two years is to be signed on 10 November. This program will focus on foreign policy support and implementation of decisions of the Supreme State Council and the Council of Ministers of the Union State.

The parties will also review the results of the previous similar foreign policy program. “We and our Belarusian friends believe that joint work based on this fundamental document allowed us to effectively thwart the attempts of the so-called collective West to exert pressure on our countries. Joint efforts to challenge the anti-Belarus campaign bore fruit. This campaign was launched by Washington and its European allies in international organizations, including the UN, OSCE, Council of Europe, ICAO. In close collaboration with like-minded people, we averted attempts to use these platforms to the detriment of our two states,” Sergey Lavrov emphasized.
