MOSCOW, 11 January (BelTA) – The policy of expanding Russia's strategic interaction with Belarus is beyond doubt, BelTA learned from the official spokeswoman of the Russian Ministry of Foreign Affairs Maria Zakharova on 11 January.
Maria Zakharova said: “Belarus is our reliable ally, a partner. The policy of expanding strategic interaction with Minsk is beyond doubt. In particular, it is stipulated by the concept of the Russian foreign policy.”
