"The (Belarusian) Foreign Ministry confirms its continuous commitment to allied and friendly relations with Russia and is looking forward to Russia’s constructive approach towards solving outstanding problems," he said.
According to Mironchik, Minsk will continue to work with its Russian counterparts to resolve the issue related to the introduction of a border zone along Russia's border with Belarus and expects the two countries state border services to cooperate closely.
The diplomat added that Belarus continues to be committed to the principle of the openness of the border with Russia in the spirit of the allied relations. "This approach was based on the border openness principle, and we continue to be committed to it honoring allied obligations," he emphasized.
