“The Russian Federation is the most important foreign political and
foreign economic partner. I hope very much that you will be a worthy
representative of Belarusian state interests in the Russian Federation,”
Lukashenko told Igor Petrishenko, whom he appointed as the Belarusian
Ambassador to Russia on Monday, Sept.10.

“I want you to understand that the Ambassador to the Russian
Federation, same as the Ambassador to Venezuela and other prime regions,
is more than just an ambassador,” he said.

Apart from being the ambassador, Petrishenko will represent Belarus
at various integration structures, Lukashenko said. “These include
politics, economy, military-technical and defense cooperation of our
countries,” he noted.
