MOSCOW, October 31 (Itar-Tass) — Russia and Belarus have approved a programme of foreign political cooperation in 2012-2013, Russian Foreign Minister Sergei Lavrov said.

“We signed a plan of inter-ministerial consultations in 2012. The number of consultations – 24 – proves the intensive nature of contacts between our ministries and between its leaders, deputies and departments,” Lavrov said.
