Lukáš Kaucký: We appreciate Belarus' contribution to CEI during chairmanship

Participants of the meeting of the heads of the foreign policy departments of the Central European Initiative arrived in Belarus on June 21.

The large-scale forum gathered representatives of about 20 countries. Before the forum the high guests expressed confidence that the dialogue would be substantive. They also noted the increased role of Belarus in the work of the organization. It is assumed that uniting efforts to maintain stability in the region will be the main topic of discussion in the Belarusian capital. Currently, a new action plan is being developed for the CEI and its structure is changing. The innovations should improve and strengthen regional ties between European states.

In 2017, Belarus chairs the Central European Initiative. In total, more than 20 meetings are planned.
