Belarusian Foreign Minister Vladimir Makei expressed his condolences to Russian Foreign Minister Sergei Lavrov over the death of Russia's Permanent Representative to the UN Vitali Churkin during a meeting in Moscow, Tuesday.

During the meeting, Lavrov noted that despite the current media climate, he hoped that the meeting of the two diplomats would end in the further development of the Union State's foreign policy cooperation, alongside other areas of bilateral collaboration.
