Russia comments on its CIS chairmanship priorities in 2024

MINSK, 27 February (BelTA)-  Permanent Representative of the Russian Federation to the CIS Andrei Grozov commented on the priorities of Russia's chairmanship in the CIS in 2024, BelTA has learned.

"As you know, since 1 January of this year, the Russian Federation assumed the chairmanship in the CIS. We presented the concept of Russia's chairmanship and an action plan of more than 150 items at a meeting of the CIS Council of Permanent Representatives in January of this year. The work has already begun," Andrei Grozov said.

Minsk is hosting another meeting of the CIS Council of Permanent Plenipotentiary Representatives. 

"In order to implement this concept, we will consider a number of issues regarding the cooperation in the CIS at the meeting today. First of all, this is the roadmap to the initiatives voiced by the heads of delegations during the meetings of the CIS Heads of State Council, the CIS Heads of Government Council, the CIS Ministerial Council and the CIS Economic Council, in terms of cooperation in security, countering terrorism and organized crime," Andrei Grozov said.

"We will also discuss cooperation in foreign policy within the framework of the CIS with an emphasis on the development of common approaches to topical international and regional problems, multi-level ministerial consultations of the CIS member states and ways of further expanding the international positioning of the CIS and increasing its international authority. First of all, we will do it by developing and deepening cooperation with interested friendly states and international organizations in the light of the regulation on the status of an observer and partner of the CIS adopted by the heads of state last year. Consideration will be given to the proposals regarding the agenda of the upcoming meeting of the CIS Heads of Government Council to be held in May," Andrei Grozov added.
