MINSK, June 4 /TASS/. The foreign ministers of the Eastern Partnership member states will gather for an informal meeting in Minsk late in June to discuss the results of the recent Eastern Partnership summit held in Riga, Latvia, on May 21-22, Belarusian Foreign Minister Vladimir Makei told TASS on Thursday.
"This is a regular event hosted by various Eastern Partnership states. It will take place shortly after the Riga summit to review the summit’s results in informal atmosphere," Makei said.
He added that the foreign ministers of the Eastern Partnership member states would exchange views and visions on how the initiative is going to develop in future.
It is the first time that Minsk is going to host negotiations to be held in such a format. The meeting will reportedly take place at the Belarusian side’s request.
Eastern Partnership is a multilateral programme of the European Union designed to develop regional cooperation with six republics of the former USSR: Azerbaijan, Armenia, Belarus, Georgia, Moldova and Ukraine.
