“Russia’s Foreign Minister Sergei Lavrov is to pay a working visit to Belarus on June 15 to 16 for talks with Belarusian Foreign Minister Vladimir Makei,” he said.
Mironchik said that the agenda of the talks included co-operation between Russia and Belarus, in particular a program for coordinated steps in foreign policies of the two states, which form the Union State of Russia and Belarus.
Bilateral partnership is marked by high intensity and is underpinned by planned management, he said.
“Certainly, pressing regional issues, including Ukraine, will be on the table,” the diplomat told ITAR-TASS.
The talks are expected to focus on interaction of the two countries’ foreign ministries as well as preparations for their joint panel that is traditionally held in autumn.
“We also expect an exchange of views on important international and regional issues and the situation in Ukraine will be definitely in the limelight,” he said.
