All technical issues and contradictions in bilateral relations will be removed until December 8.
This initiative was announced today by the President of Belarus at a meeting with his Russian counterpart at the 6th Forum of the Regions in St. Petersburg. The proposal was made in the presence of the key ministers of the two governments. As the Belarusian leader noted, people are waiting for specific decisions from the presidents and governments, and it is unacceptable to delay decisions.
