Presidents of Russia and Belarus Vladimir Putin and Alexander Lukashenko will hold talks in Sochi on September 14. The meeting is scheduled to start at 14:00. Press secretary of the Russian leader Dmitry Peskov told reporters how long negotiations between the two heads of state could last.

How much is required. Negotiations have not yet begun, - quotes Peskov's answer to TASS.

The press service of the President of Belarus previously reported that the leaders would hold a one-on-one meeting. During the conversation, the presidents will discuss the state and prospects of bilateral cooperation in various fields, union relations, international problems and more.

For Lukashenka, these negotiations will take place within the framework of his first foreign visit after the August 9 elections. The voting results led to massive protests in Belarus that continue to this day. Tens of thousands of people participate in street marches, believing the voting results to be falsified. According to the official data of the Central Election Commission of the republic, 80.1% of voters voted for the incumbent President Alexander Lukashenko, and 10.1% for his main rival Svetlana Tikhanovskaya.

As reported, Bloomberg learned about the position of the Russian leader on the eve of the upcoming talks with the Belarusian president.
