MOSCOW, December 25. /ITAR-TASS/. Russia and Belarus intend to continue cooperation in order to meet the interests of citizens in the defence field, Belarusian President Alexander Lukashenko said at a session of the Supreme State Council of the Union State on Wednesday.
“We heard how noise around our presence at the Zapad 2013 (West 2013) exercises,” Lukashenko told the audience.
“We’ll decisively protect the interests of our states and our citizens by ensuring security of Belarus and Russia,” the Belarusian president said.
Commenting on signing an agreement on the fight against corruption and crime, he said, “Law enforcement agencies can compete with the foreign ministries.”
“There are good fellows. There are no questions to defence and to the interior ministries,” Lukashenko said.
