MOSCOW, November 22. /TASS/. Russian President Vladimir Putin and his Belarusian counterpart Alexander Lukashenko will be able to interact on the sidelines of a session of the Collective Security Council of the Collective Security Treaty Organization (CSTO) in Yerevan on Wednesday, Kremlin Spokesman Dmitry Peskov told TASS on Tuesday.
"They will have the opportunity to talk on the sidelines of the summit," the Kremlin official replied to a question as to whether a bilateral meeting between Putin and Lukashenko was planned in Yerevan.
In late October, the Belarusian president noted his intention to meet with the Russian leader in the near future. On November 8, Lukashenko and Putin held a phone conversation discussing the issues of Russian-Belarusian interaction and the upcoming CSTO summit.
Earlier, Putin’s press secretary told reporters that Putin was planning a separate meeting with Armenian Prime Minister Nikol Pashinyan during the Yerevan visit.
According to the Kremlin press service, the CSTO summit will review the key directions of interaction within the framework of the organization and pertinent international and regional problems.
