"Yes, the meeting (of the two presidents) is scheduled for November 22," he told reporters.
"I have agreed with the Russian president to hold a meeting next week around November 22. We will sit down together and discuss pressing issues," Belarusian leader Lukashenko told reporters earlier on Thursday. According to him, "we just need to implement our agreements." "We have some complaints and Russia does, too. So we will sit down to calmly discuss these issues and try to give a new impetus to bilateral relations," the Belarusian president stated.
