MINSK, 28 April (BelTA) - Belarus and Russia are building the Union State which may attract other countries, Belarusian President Aleksandr Lukashenko said as he met with Governor of Russia's Voronezh Oblast Aleksandr Gusev in Minsk on 28 April, BelTA has learned.
The head of state noted that he sees a great interest in the development of cooperation with Belarus on the part of Russian regions.
"Thanks to you we have this cooperation.
