“Russia is the top priority of our foreign policy. It is our strategic partner and ally in the international arena. The level of interaction that we have achieved over the years, in my understanding, is unmatched in the post-Soviet space. We coordinate our efforts in the bilateral format and in the international organizations in a systemic and trust-based manner,”state-run news agency BelTA quotes the minister as saying.

In his opinion, the Union State does have a future, He called on the sides to strengthen the integration in the organization.
