MINSK, November 22 /TASS/. Russia and Belarus have fostered allied relations thanks to years of progressive rapprochement, Russian Foreign Minister Sergey Lavrov said at the start of a joint meeting of the boards of the Russian and Belarusian Foreign Ministries on Tuesday.
"We have managed to ensure a truly allied nature of our relations and have shown the advantages of progressive rapprochement," the Russian foreign minister said.
Lavrov noted that Moscow and Minsk held almost identical approaches on all urgent international issues at the United Nations. He pointed to joint support for the UN General Assembly’s annual anti-Nazi resolution; interaction at the General Assembly Social, Humanitarian and Cultural Affairs Committee and the United Nations Human Rights Council, in which Russia and Belarus stand against politicizing the matters under discussion, are just a few examples of Russian-Belarusian cooperation.
"We appreciate that our Belarusian friends are building a dialogue with the European Union and NATO while taking into account their commitments to the Eurasian Economic Union and the Collective Security Treaty Organization (CSTO)," Lavrov added.
