Kremlin comments on Belarus-U.S. convergence
Moscow does not consider Belarus and the United States rapidly becoming closer, the Kremlin spokesman Dmitry Peskov said, commenting on the recent visit by U.S. Secretary of State Mike Pompeo to Minsk, where he held talks with Belarusian president Alexander Lukashenko.
"We hardly can talk about ultra-rapid convergence here," the spokesman said.
At the same time, Peskov refused to provide further comments on the specific details of the negotiations: "We cannot and we do not want to comment our partners’ contacts with third countries; this is a totally sovereign right, implementation of their sovereign relations," Peskov said.
The spokesman added that Moscow and Minsk has relations of their own, which have a "friendly, very close nature."
"There is a lot of questions on agenda on how to develop our relations, including some problematic moments, which are in the talks right now," TASS cited him as saying.
