Belarus, Lithuania, Ukraine to work on Eastern Partnership program

MINSK, September 8 (Itar-Tass) -- Belarus, Lithuania and Ukraine agreed to set joint priority projects for the implementation of the EU programme - Eastern Partnership.

Foreign ministers of the three countries met on Wednesday for consultations.

"We have agreed that the list of joint projects, which was worked out by our countries last year and which were presented to Eastern Partnership, will be reconsidered, and we shall have a more brief list of projects," Belarus' Foreign Minister Sergei Martynov said.

"We are not expecting anything extraordinary from Eastern Partnership," Ukraine's Foreign Minister Konstantin Grishchenko said. "We work actively in the bilateral and trilateral formats."

However, cooperation with the EU may be of "major benefit for the activities of the governments, which are involved in implementation of their own programmes," he added.
