MINSK, 7 December (BelTA) – The situation in the Balkans often comes up in our meetings with Russian President Vladimir Putin, Belarusian President Aleksandr Lukashenko said as he met with Belarus' Honorary Consul in Belgrade, Chairman of the Serbia-Belarus Friendship Group in the Serbian Parliament Dragomir Karic, BelTA has learned.

"I must tell you that we talk about the Balkans at almost every meeting with President Putin. Who do we have in the Balkans? Right, we have Serbia. The foothold of the Slavs in the Balkans in all times. It still is today. Very often we discuss the problems that you are dealing with. We are committed to very good cooperation," the head of state said.

Aleksandr Lukashenko noted that Serbian President Aleksandar Vucic is well aware of this. He has recently met with the Russian president. "Putin holds people he can rely on in high regard. We often talk about Serbia," he added.
