MOSCOW, September 8 (Itar-Tass) —— The Kremlin denied reports claiming that Moscow has accused Belarusian President Alexander Lukashenko of vulgarising the Collective Security Treaty Organisation (CSTO) reform.
Presidential aide Sergei Prikhodko dismissed as untrue media reports that published statements reportedly made by the Kremlin that Lukashenko has used the idea of CSTO aid to member states for his own purposes and vulgarised it.
“That the Kremlin is displeased is disinformation. What Alexander Grigoryevich [Lukashenko] said after an informal CSTO summit on broader cooperation within the Organisation was done by agreement with the Russian side,” he said.
“His ideas concerning broader cooperation within the CSTO are supported by the Russian president,” Prikhodko added.
“Assertions criticising Lukashenko for his assessment of CSTO activities are not true,” he stressed.
The aide confirmed that Moscow and Minsk are negotiating for holding a meeting of the Supreme State Council of Russia and Belarus.
“The president of Russia is satisfied with the nature and tone of the discussion on the most pressing issues of bilateral cooperation that took place during their meeting in Sochi,” Prikhodko said. “The Belarusian side and we are now choosing the date for a meeting of the Supreme State Council. And I hope that we will soon coordinate it with all members [of the Council], including prime ministers and speakers.”
“We hope that the meeting will take place this autumn,” he added.
