    MINSK, January 29 (RIA Novosti) - President of Belarus Alexander Lukashenko believes that there is no tragic acuteness in Russian-Belarussian relations, though there are disagreements between economic agents.

    "There is no tragic acuteness in our relations. There are usual working disagreements between economic agents," he said at a meeting with Vladimir Rushailo, Secretary of the Russian Security Council.

    According to the president, "he does not dramatize any events." He was referring to the reaction of mass media, first of all Russian, to the aroused questions, he explained.

    "Disagreeing economic agents want to shift the unsolved problems to the presidents," Lukashenko believes.

    He is flatly against this stand and emphasized that the issues "should be solved by economic agents or, as a last resort, by governments." "But it is not correct to shift economic issues to political figures," the president said.

    Lukashenko also intends to discuss with Rushailo a number of problems in the CIS and the Union State of Russia and Belarus, he added.

    Rushailo is in Belarus with a working visit.
