Euroradio

A telephone conversation between the Belarusian state leader and the Russian PM took place on Monday.

According to BELTA, the conversation took place after the plea of the Russian side. Alyaksandr Lukashenka and Dmitri Medvedev discussed "actual issues of the integration in the framework of the Eurasian Economic Union, also in the context of the economic connections with other countries". They also touched upon the "issues of mutual interest".

Lukashenka and Medvedev probably discussed Ukraine as well. Recently, Belarus banned import of potato from Ukraine after Russia had insisted on that.
