Belarusian-Baltic Pact Signed

Lithuanian Agriculture Minister Kazimieras Starkevicius announced a new platform for cooperation between farmers of the Baltic states and Belarus. "We will all win through cooperation," Starkevicius declared to the press and handed out lapel buttons and logoed balloons and tshirts with the text. "This is our slogan and we are proud of it. We spent three days together behind closed doors developing it."
Cooperation agreements signed by representatives of the three Baltic states and Belarus call for one full year of tshirt distribution followed by a second meeting next year in Jurmala where dairy products would be shown by the Belarusian delegation who have traveled with them in their warm suitcases by bus for the ten-hour journey plus the twelve hours spent on the Belarusian side of the border in passport- and customs lines.
