A delegation of the Belarusian government, led by Dzyanis Sidarenka, chief of the foreign ministry's European Cooperation Directorate, attended an April 21 meeting in Brussels that focused on the European Union's Eastern Partnership program.

Those in attendance reviewed the program's intermediate results, discussed reform of the EU's European Neighborhood Policy and preparations for a meeting of the EU and Eastern Partnership countries' foreign ministers to be held in Brussels this May.

"At the meeting the Belarusian delegation presented our country's stance on developing relations with the European Union and ways to make the Eastern Partnership yield more specific results," said the foreign ministry's press office.

Mr. Sidarenka and Andrey Yewdachenka, Belarus' permanent representative to the EU, were also among representatives of the six Eastern Partnership countries who had a meeting with Alain Le Roy, secretary general of the EU's European External Action Service.
