MINSK, March 29. /TASS/. Belarusian President Alexander Lukashenko plans to meet with his Russian counterpart Vladimir Putin on April 3, the BelaPAN news agency reported citing Belarusian Deputy Prime Minister Vladimir Semashko.
"The two countries’ presidents will discuss the Eurasian Economic Union’s restriction-free single market," the news agency quoted him as saying.
According to Semashko, he could not say that "everything is fine as far as our relations are concerned." He added that the presidents would particularly discuss "what needs to be done to improve conditions for cooperation and eliminate discrimination." "It is very important for us to have an opportunity to sell our goods to Russia, it is one of the main reasons why we joined the Eurasian Economic Union. We joined it in order to create a single market for the member states and provide them with equal conditions for their economic activities, particularly including the energy sector," the Belarusian prime minister said.
The Kremlin press service has not yet confirmed the meeting to TASS.
From the beginning of 2016, Moscow and Minsk have been trying to come to terms on the price of the Russian natural gas supplied to Belarus.
