Having discussed the refugee problem in detail, the parties came to a certain understanding of how to act and to move on in solving the existing issues. The Belarusian president and Germany's acting chancellor agreed that the problem will be addressed at the level of Belarus and the EU, and that the two sides will designate officials who will immediately enter into negotiations in order to resolve the existing problems. The desire of refugees to get to Germany will be addressed in the same context," the press service said.
