Meeting of the Council of Ministers of the Union State

Good afternoon, Mr Golovchenko, Mr Mezentsev, colleagues, friends.

First of all, I would like to thank our Belarusian colleagues for the warm welcome and the outstanding organization of the meeting.

The presidents of Russia and Belarus, Vladimir Putin and Alexander Lukashenko, met yesterday in Moscow. The leaders of our countries adopted a critical decision to deepen integration within the Union State. Our objective is to implement the agreements reached at the highest level.

That is why today’s meeting of the Council of Ministers of the Union State has a special value for the development of the brotherly Russian-Belarusian relations. We are sincerely interested in bringing our cooperation to a new level and boosting the integration processes in the Union State.

Today’s agenda features only one issue. We are to approve the Main Areas for the Implementation of the Terms of the Treaty on the Creation of the Union State for this year and the next two years, as well as 28 sectoral union programs. They were developed by not only government agencies, but also banking structures and business circles. The opinions of the citizens of our two countries were also taken into account, for it is they who are supposed to feel the positive impact of the integration processes.

I would like to thank everyone who has contributed to this great common cause. We hope that in the near future the documents will be approved by the Supreme State Council under the leadership of Presidents Vladimir Putin and Alexander Lukashenko. This will create a reliable legal basis for joint work to strengthen Russian-Belarusian integration.

Our common goal is to improve the standard of living of every citizen in both countries. This can only be achieved by ensuring the growth of our economies. We must create a single space based on the principles of openness, transparency and mutual trust, and on rules that take into account the interests and needs of residents and entrepreneurs. And of course, while fully preserving the sovereignty of our states.

The union programs which I spoke about are aimed at addressing precisely these tasks. They envisage a convergence of macroeconomic policies and the creation of conditions for support …

To be continued …
