The development of the Arctic could become a promising area of cooperation between Russia and Belarus, said State Secretary of the Union State Grigory Rapota.
There is a promising area in which we could well combine our efforts which is Arctic development. This region is Russian territory, but the fact is that Belarus has a lot of modern scientific and technical developments that we developed for the Arctic, for low temperatures. We are working on them now, noted the official in his interview with Belarus 1 TV channel.
Grigory Rapota added that, on the whole, he sees the future of the Union State «in the united efforts in common creative activity, for example, in the areas of infrastructural transformations, scientific and technological progress, environmental protection, medicine, and pharmaceuticals.»
