“The foreign ministers will sign the agreement on May 29,” the Belarusian Foreign Ministry’s spokesperson said.
Head of the Belarusian Interior Ministry's Department of Citizenship and Migration Aleksey Begun told Sputnik that there were still some "practical implementation issues" to be resolved before the agreement could be signed.
"The validity period of the agreement, which will be signed on May 29, is until the end of the European Games unless the parties agree otherwise," Begun said.
According to Begun, Belarus and Russia are working on a major agreement on mutual visa recognition, with the negotiation process set to be finished by the end of the year.
Earlier, the Belarusian Interior Ministry said that one of these options, which included the provisions of the main agreement, was set to be signed in late May and come into force on June 1.
The World Cup will be held in 11 cities across Russia from June 14 to July 15, while the European Games will be held in Belarus from June 21 to June 30, 2019.
