MOSCOW, December 15 /TASS/. Russian President Vladimir Putin said that Moscow and Minsk hold similar stances on ways of settling the Ukraine crisis and counter-terrorism struggle.
"We noted the closeness of our countries’ positions on such urgent issues as the settlement of the Ukraine crisis and fight against international terrorism in Syria," the Russian president told journalists after negotiations with Belarusian President Alexander Lukashenko.
"Russia and Belarus pursue a coordinated foreign policy in the international arena," Putin said.
"This year, special attention was paid to holding a number of events devoted to the 70th anniversary of victory in the Great Patriotic War [1941-1945] within the framework of the United Nations and other multilateral organizations. In July [this year], Belarus, with our active support, received an observer status at the Shanghai Cooperation Organization (SCO). That was another example of close cooperation," Putin said.
"For the purpose of strengthening regional stability and security, we agreed to actively develop military-technological cooperation," the Russian president emphasized.
