“The dynamics of the Union State’s development is very good. The two countries’ heads of state have met seven times this year alone,” Bambiza said, noting that also the countries’ heads of government met repeatedly.

“We have common social policy providing equal conditions to the two countries’ citizens in health services and education. The countries closely cooperate in military and security spheres,” he said, noting that the Eurasian Economic Union regulated trade and economic relations of Belarus, Russia and Kazakhstan.
