MINSK, March 06. /ITAR-TASS/. Belarus has no objections to Ukraine’s initiative on holding an extraordinary session of the Council of CIS Foreign Ministers, Belarusian Foreign Ministry spokesman Dmitry Mironchik said.
“Belarus informed the CIS Executive Secretariat that it did not object in principle to convening an extraordinary session of the Council of CIS Foreign Ministers,” Mironchik told Itar-Tass.
All decisions are being taken by consensus and draft documents are being coordinated ahead by diplomatic channels. “We believe that it is expedient to hold consultations at the level of permanent representatives in order to coordinate documents, which are planning to be submitted to the upcoming session,” the spokesman said.
At present, Russia and Belarus are holding inter-ministerial consultations that focus on Ukraine, he added.
Earlier, the Ukrainian ambassador to Belarus said Kiev had initiated the extraordinary session for March 7.
Russian Deputy Foreign Minister Vasily Nebenzya said it would be technically impossible to meet in Kiev on March 7. “Our minister (Russian Foreign Minister Sergei Lavrov) and his counterparts have their own plans. We don’t give up a dialogue,” the Russian diplomat said.
