Talks Between Russian, Belarusian Leaders Continue Into Second Day – TASS | World News

MOSCOW (Reuters) – Talks between Russian President Vladimir Putin and his Belarusian counterpart Alexander Lukashenko in the southern Russian town of Sochi continued into a second day on Saturday, Kremlin spokesman Dmitry Peskov said.

Lukashenko flew into Russia on Friday for talks with Putin amid an uproar in Europe over the grounding of a passenger plane in Minsk and the arrest of a dissident blogger.

“Discussion between the two presidents continue today,” Peskov was quoted as saying by TASS news agency.
