MINSK, 2 December (BelTA) - When it comes to friendship, it is always a two-way street, and it is always important to hear and consider each other's points of view, Chairman of the Russian State Duma Vyacheslav Volodin said as he met with Belarusian President Aleksandr Lukashenko on 2 December, BelTA has learned.

“We are indeed on the same wavelength, moving along the same track. The State Duma elections have been recently held. Now we are set to elect the governing body in the Union State Parliament. The most important thing is to engage in meaningful work, to reconcile positions, and once again clarify the priorities. When it comes to friendship, it is always a two-way street. It is important to hear and take into account each other's point of view,” he said.

According to Vyacheslav Volodin, the MPs of the two countries generally work to ensure the implementation of the agreements reached between the presidents. “The decisions we are going to consider now concern the development of relations across a wide range of areas,” the State Duma speaker said.

As BelTA reported earlier, Vyacheslav Volodin arrived in Minsk on 2 December to attend the 61st session of the Union State Parliamentary Assembly. The agenda of the meeting includes the legislative support of the decisions taken by the presidents of Belarus and Russia to implement 28 Union State programs.
