MINSK, 8 June (BelTA) – I will meet with Russian President Vladimir Putin soon, Belarusian President Aleksandr Lukashenko said as he met with the secretaries of the Security Councils of the CSTO member states in Minsk on 8 June, BelTA has learned.
During the meeting, Aleksandr Lukashenko touched upon the settlement of the conflict between Armenia and Azerbaijan. The president stressed that the secretaries of the Security Councils of the CSTO countries should also make their proposals in this regard, because they are not outside observers in this situation.
"I will soon meet with the Russian president. I will definitely brief him about our meeting. He knows I'm meeting with you today. He has a meeting with the prime ministers tomorrow [CIS Heads of Government Council is meeting in Sochi these days]. We will discuss all these issues and try, perhaps, to offer you some practical ideas. But I urge you to put forward reasonable, sensible initiatives," Aleksandr Lukashenko said.
"I also urge not to quarrel with each other. We will have time and opportunity to have many quarrels: you see how they are trying to pull us apart. I will not go into specifics," the Belarusian leader added.
