Russian Prime Minister Vladimir Putin says he hopes to thrash out all differences on a Single Economic Area with Belarus until the end of the day. He said this during his meeting with his Belarusian counterpart Sergei Sidorsky in Moscow earlier today.
Vladimir Putin pointed out that the Russian and Belarusian economies were quite sensitive on some points. These problems should be settled, so the entire Single Economic Area package could take effect, the Russian Prime Minister said.
