Mezentsev about governments’ report on their work on Union State programmes
The governments of Belarus and Russia will present a report on the first stage of work on the Union State programmes at a meeting of the Council of Ministers of the Union State – as stated by the State Secretary of the Union State Dmitry Mezentsev, BelTA reports
“28 Union State programmes have been approved. This year, the governments of Belarus and Russia should submit a report on the first stage of work to the Council of Ministers of the Union State. We assume that the date of the meeting will be determined soon. I’m convinced that the reports will be successful and consistent, especially since the interaction between republican and federal departments is very close, substantial and partnership-based, inspired by the desire to find mutually acceptable solutions. The tone of this conversation is very professional," said Mr. Mezentsev.
On November 4th, the President of Belarus, Chairman of the Supreme State Council of the Union State, Aleksandr Lukashenko, at the meeting of this Union State body signed the decree of the Supreme State Council ‘On the Guidelines to Implement the Union State Treaty in 2021-2023’. As a follow-up to the document, a package of 28 Union State programmes has been developed, which will become a practical basis for deepening integration.
