Lukashenko says prepared to switch to single currency in Union State but not Russian ruble

MINSK. April 2 (Interfax) - Belarusian President Alexander Lukashenko has confirmed that Minsk is discussing the issue of creating a single currency with Moscow.

"Let's take the most serious [point of the agreement on creation of the Union State] that's being discussed today. Let's assume it's a single currency. We're not against a single currency, just it should be a neutral currency. This isn't the Belarusian ruble, it isn't the Russian one," Lukashenko said in an interview with the Mir TV and radio company.

The BelTA state news agency has published part of the interview.
