Belarusian President Lukashenko stated that the introduction of a single currency between Russia and Belarus is not an urgent issue today, referring to the possibility of implementing the project in the future.
The Belarusian president’s statement came in a meeting he held today, Monday, in the Belarusian capital, Minsk, with the head of the Russian Central Bank, Elvira Nabiullina, in agreement with Russian President Vladimir Putin.
Lukashenko said: “When it comes to creating a single currency and so on, the process is not easy, and perhaps the step will be implemented not today (currently) as we agreed with the Russian president.”
On December 8, 1999, Russia and Belarus signed a treaty establishing the State of the Union, which includes conducting economic and trade integration between the two countries.
