MINSK, June 19 (Itar-Tass) — Belarus may take the rotating presidency of the CIS next year, the CIS Executive Secretary, Sergei Lebedev, told the media on Tuesday.
“Belarus will be asked to take the rotating presidency of the CIS in 2013. As far as I know, the Belarussian leadership has no objections to accepting the offer. We are in the process of coordinating this issue,” Lebedev said.
In his opinion, this question will be discussed at a meeting of the CIS heads of state in Ashgabat in November this year.
Lebedev said that Belarus is an active participant in integration processes inside the CIS, and “if it takes the presidency, it will successfully cope with it, because it has vast experience.
