Lukashenko and Putin touched upon key pressing issues along with the implementation of previous agreements.
"One of the key topics brought up by the presidents was an epidemiological situation. The main emphasis now is on the vaccination and the production of vaccines. It is a positive example of the closest collaboration between the two countries. It is the field where cooperation between Belarus and Russia is currently the most productive," the news agency said. ■
