Andreichenko: Belarus would like to see calmer, consistently positive situation in oil, gas matters
- Belarus would like to see a calmer, more dynamic and consistently positive situation in oil and gas matters, Chairman of the House of Representatives of the National Assembly Vladimir Andreichenko said in an interview with the SB. Belarus Today newspaper, BelTA has learned.
The speaker gave his assessment of the Eurasian integration. “Our country would like to see a calmer, more dynamic and consistently positive situation in the oil and gas matters. We would also like to see all trade and economic barriers removed without delays. The head of state expressed Belarus' clear position both in the format of bilateral relations of the Union State and in the Eurasian Economic Union and the CIS. This position is equal and mutually beneficial cooperation. We will stick to it," the chairman of the House of Representatives stressed.
Vladimir Andreichenko noted that in times of difficulties, the problems become more pronounced. “In order not to repeat them, we must consistently address them in accordance with the interstate agreements. This is what Belarus calls for. It is impossible to create a common market with the free movement of goods, services, capital and labor if we do not have uniform rules. Both in the Union State and in the Eurasian Economic Union it is especially important to preserve and thoughtfully improve the legal framework without any discrimination against partners. I think this is a key message to understand how we can pre-empt disagreements,” Vladimir Andreichenko said.
The chairman of the House of Representatives also commented on the amendments the national legislation might need after the planned changes to the Constitution of Belarus. “We will see how the situation will be unfolding. We have time-tested parliamentary instruments to assess the efficiency of steps in addressing various issues. We will do our best to secure a smooth forward movement of our sovereign and independent Belarus,” the speaker said.
