"Issues of activation of Belarusian-Ukrainian contacts at all levels were discussed during the conversation. In particular, attention was focused on the importance of the preparation for the meeting between President of Ukraine P. Poroshenko and President of the Republic of Belarus A. Lukashenko, which is scheduled for April," the statement said.

Special attention was paid to the issues of deepening bilateral trade and economic cooperation and increasing the trade turnover between the two countries.
