We do not divide Russia and Belarus by borders, but keep trying to build something in common, president Alyaksandr Lukashenka said at Monday’s meeting with with Governor of Russia’s Kaliningrad Oblast Anton Alikhanov on Monday.
“I hope we will continue developing our relations in this context because we are not strangers, we have a common homeland. We do not divide Russia and Belarus by borders. We are united in a common cause. And we call it the Union State,” state-run news agency BelTA quotes Lukashenka.
It has not been specified which cooperation issues were discussed by Lukashenka and Alikhanov.
“The things that happen on the borders with Belarus reflect the situation on the border with Kaliningrad Oblast. We are facing the enhancement of the NATO. In economy and trade everyone pursues their own interests. I cannot say that they like you or us, Russia and Belarus, very much,” the Belarusian leader stressed.
The Belarusian leader also promised that Kaliningrad can always count on Belarusians who will always ‘offer a helping hand’.
