MOSCOW, October 28. /TASS/. The issues of stationing a Russian air base in Belarus is being discussed, Kremlin spokesman Dmitry Peskov said on Wednesday.

"We have a rather broad agenda [with Belarus] on military-technical cooperation, cooperation in the spheres of security and defense. In the context of our alliance, these issues will be discussed in some form," Peskov said answering a question on whether the topic of opening a Russian military base in Belarus is being discussed. "I cannot say anything concrete for now," he added.

Russian President Vladimir Putin last month instructed the Defense Ministry and Foreign Ministry to enter negotiations with Belarus and to sign an agreement on creating a Russian airbase in the country’s territory. As the Russian government said earlier, the agreement would contribute to establishing a joint defense of the Union State’s border in the air space and to create an integral regional air defense system of Russia and Belarus.
