NUR-SULTAN. Feb 25 (Interfax) - Belarusian Prime Minister Roman Golovchenko have met with his Russian counterpart Mikhail Mishustin to reaffirm that the Union State's western borders are being guarded safely by the Belarusian armed forces.

"The president of our country said at a meeting with security and military officials that it was decided that within the framework of obligations under the alliance between Russia and Belarus in view of the fact that there is a non-stop build-up of NATO forces and equipment going on in the eastern flank of NATO, the Belarusian armed forces and other military formations are ensuring the security on the western borders of the Union State. And as the president then said, not a single bullet and not a single shell will hit on the Russian soldier's back from this side," Golovchenko said at the meeting with Mishustin on the sidelines of the Eurasian Economic Union Intergovernmental Council.
