MINSK, December 11. /ITAR-TASS/. Belarusian Foreign Minister Vladimir Makei said on Wednesday that the Belarusian authorities sought to improve relations with the United States and were ready for an open dialogue.
“Belarus understands the importance of maintaining good relations with the United States. We seek to improve the Belarusian-U.S. relations,” Makei said at a meeting with Eric Rubin, the deputy assistant secretary of state.
Makei said he was ready to discuss a wide range of issues during Wednesday’s meeting. “We are ready for an open and sincere dialogue,” the Belarusian foreign minister emphasized.
It is known that Eric Rubin is planning to meet representatives of Belarusian opposition and civil society.
The Belarusian authorities expelled the U.S. ambassador from Minsk in 2008. Since then, the two countries have been maintaining contacts at the level of Charges d’Affaires. The United States has imposed a number of political and economic sanctions on the authorities in Minsk.
