Belarusian Deputy Prime Minister Vladimir Semashko said that Putin and Lukashenko would hold talks to discuss issues related to the Eurasian Economic Union (EAEU), particularly, to the problem of the common market.

Russian Ambassador to Belarus Alexander Surikov noted that the presidents would also discuss oil and gas issues.

In February, the Belarusian president slammed Russia for what he considered to be the deterioration of bilateral relations, citing alleged violation of economic agreements. The Kremlin considers Lukashenko’s claims incorrect, adding that any controversial points between the two sides should be solved in the course of negotiations.

In March, Lukashenko said that he had great relations with Putin, adding that he was ready to hold a meeting with the Russian leader to solve the existing differences.
