During the meeting of the Supreme State Council of the Union State, the President of Belarus emphasised the two states’ multipronged foreign policy interaction, adding that Belarus and Russia share a common position on virtually all contemporary issues at various international platforms
“We can’t but note our close co-operation in the field of defence. As recent events have shown, the regional grouping of the Union State troops is a reliable security shield not only for our countries but for the entire post-Soviet space," Aleksandr Lukashenko stressed. “The President [of Russia] and I do not hide our intentions to strengthen this grouping in the future.”
Social issues and protection of citizens’ interests occupy a special place in the Union State building. “We have achieved the most tangible results in carrying out co-ordinated social policy that ensures a decent life and free human development. Citizens of our two countries enjoy equal rights in work, recreation, healthcare and education,” the Head of State noted.
