MINSK, 30 June (BelTA) - The achievements of the Union State can be scaled up across other integration associations, Russian Foreign Minister Sergey Lavrov said at an offsite session of the International Cooperation and Support for Compatriots Abroad Commission of the General Council of the United Russia party held at the branch of the Russian State Social University in Minsk, BelTA has learned.
The minister recalled the initiative of Russian President Vladimir Putin to create a greater Eurasian partnership. Sergey Lavrov noted that the achievements of the Union State can be used for this.
Further expansion of cooperation between the allies will be an adequate response to the destructive actions of the West, he said. "A good example of an effective response to numerous challenges is the intensification of efforts within the framework of the Union State," Sergey Lavrov said. “Russia and Belarus have reached the highest level of cooperation and integration in the Eurasian space. Together we are implementing very ambitious integration plans."
