Visiting Belarus visa-free

Such measures undermine trust among partners and may ultimately impair regional stability and security.
 
The foreign ministers of the Republic of Armenia, the Republic of Belarus, the Republic of Kazakhstan, the Kyrghyz Republic, the Russian Federation, the Republic of Tajikistan are firmly convinced that only an equal dialogue will help resolve international disagreements. The foreign ministers stand for rejection of any actions that run contrary to the spirit and principles of good neighborliness and mutual respect.
