MINSK, Belarus – The Belarusian foreign ministry said on Thursday in an annual foreign policy review that it remained committed to its strategic partnership with Russia in 2017 while also building relations with the United States and European Union.
“In conditions of mistrust between Russia and the West, Belarus, on the one hand, stayed committed to strategic partnership with Russia, to integration within the Eurasian Economic Union and traditional cooperation with the member states of the Collective Security Treaty Organization and the Commonwealth of Independent States,” the ministry said.
“Belarus continued to build constructive and pragmatic relations with the European Union, the United States and other Western countries,” the ministry proudly stated.
2017 saw “intensive top-level contacts, efficient inter-parliamentary and intergovernmental cooperation,” the ministry noted. “Relations had a comprehensive character.”
