MINSK, June 4. /TASS/. The Russian and Belarusian presidents will attend the 3rd forum of the two countries’ regions due to be held in Minsk on June 7-8 and expected to focus on social issues, Russian Federation Council Speaker Valentina Matviyenko said in a televised interview with the RTR-Belarus broadcaster on Saturday.

"The fact that presidents of our states take part in forums on interregional cooperation proves that they draw enormous attention to this format of our cooperation," Matviyenko said, noting the social policy would be in the spotlight of the meeting.

"The existing difficult economic situation does not mean we should pay less attention to how our citizens are feeling now," she said.

"As we are building a common United State, we should try to provide equal social opportunities, which would ensure equal access to education and healthcare along with appropriate migration of labor force," the head of Russia’s upper parliamentary house said, adding "sometime, we would reach equal social standards."

Besides, Matviyenko said "the idea to convene the interregional cooperation forum within the framework of the Eurasian Economic Union turned to be right."

"It will be implemented when the time comes," she said.
