MINSK, 29 December (BelTA) – Belarusian President Aleksandr Lukashenko gave his take on the outcomes of the CIS informal summit in Saint Petersburg at the official part of the meeting with his Russian counterpart in Saint Petersburg, BelTA has learned.

“It was a very good event – cordial and friendly. We saw once again that the leaders of the post-Soviet republics, including Belarus, fully understand the situation around us and the intricacies of international politics. And this is due to Russia. Of course, Russia always finds itself on the receiving end of this all and this time too. Russia proved to be a reliable partner. The way we, heads of state, act shows that we understand what is happening. People in our states understand it too. The whole thing brought us closer (I am already an experienced person in this) and strengthened our determination to address various issues together,” the Belarusian leader said.

According to Aleksandr Lukashenko, despite the informal nature of the CIS meeting held the day before, the parties managed to reach understanding across a number of issues, including those they had failed to agree on before. The head of state mentioned humanitarian matters, like science, the Russian language, and so on. “We were pleasantly surprised by all our colleagues who supported your proposals on many humanitarian issues. I think you will later tell people about this yourself,” the president stressed.
