By REN QI in Moscow | China Daily | Updated: 2020-09-16 00:00

Russian President Vladimir Putin pledged a $1.5 billion loan to Belarus during a meeting with his Belarusian counterpart Alexander Lukashenko on Monday.

The meeting at a Black Sea resort in the southern Russian city of Sochi was the two leaders' first face-to-face talks since Lukashenko won a sixth term in a presidential election last month.

Putin said he hopes constitutional reforms planned by Lukashenko will help settle the crisis in Belarus.
