Lukashenka explains Russians’ tactics: To promise and forget


Alyaksandr Lukashenka commented on the work of the joint Belarus-Russia group on integration during his meeting with the Union State Secretary Grigory Rapota. The group was supposed to analyze all the problems in the relations of the two states. “There are only promises,” Lukashenka’s press service quotes him as saying. “When the workgroup encountered an issue, the Russian government including PM Medvedev started promising to give all the corresponding orders to comprehensively solve the problems.  This is their negotiation tactics: to keep promising and forgetting. It means that these processes are being deliberately hindered.”

As a result, he has nothing to discuss with Vladimir Putin, the President said. Meanwhile, they have two meetings scheduled for the near future. Alyaksandr Lukashenka has asked Grigory Rapota “to strictly put the question to Russia since we need to get certain results in just a few days.”
