Minsk keeps unchanged the foreign policy vector of alliance with Moscow, Belarusian Foreign Minister Vladimir Makei said at the beginning of negotiations with his Russian counterpart Sergey Lavrov in Moscow.
"There have been media rumors of some changes in foreign policy vectors," he said. "As before, we regard Moscow the closest ally and partner and will always adhere to our concerted approaches."
"The situation in the world is complicated, the one in our region, too," Makei said. "I am certain that these days our cooperation in a constructive fashion in the international scene and within our integration structure — the Union State of Russia and Belarus, and other integration structures is greater demand than ever before."
"A number of problems require our concerted response," he added.
