    "At the end of the year we will have to draw up a road map, a program of future cooperation. I believe we do it in the right time," Lukashenko said at a meeting with World Bank Europe and Central Asia Vice President Cyril Muller.

    The Belarusian leader stressed that the joint projects between Belarus and the World Bank, notably in road construction, environmental reclaim and forestry, reached some $1 billion and voiced hope for deeper cooperation,
