MOSCOW, October 26 (Itar-Tass) —— Russian Foreign Minister Sergei Lavrov will make a working visit to Minsk on October 30, Foreign Ministry Spokesman Alexander Lukashevich said on Friday.
“Sergei Lavrov will pay a working visit to Minsk to take part in a joint meeting of the boards of the Russian and Belarusian foreign ministries,” he said.
“Russia and Belarus maintain regular foreign political dialog,” the diplomat said, reaffirming that the two sides had already exchanged visits this year. Lavrov visited Minsk on August 14-15, while his Belarusian counterpart Vladimir Makei visited Moscow on September 19.
“The joint meeting of the Russian and Belarusian foreign ministries’ boards is an annual event,” Lukashevich said, adding, “The use of such a format of work allows us to consider in detail the world’s most pressing events and work out coordinated approaches to the international agenda.”
According to the ministry’s spokesman, at the forthcoming meeting the members of the boards are going to discuss interaction within the OSCE format in connection with the will-be OSCE Council of Foreign Ministers meeting due in Dublin on December 6-7.
“Besides, the program of the board meeting also envisages cooperation in the UN format on the human rights matters, as well as discussion of issues linked with the falsification of historical events and other problems of mutual interest,” Lukashevich said.
