BISHKEK (Reuters) - Russia is confident it will be able to resolve a series of disputes with Belarus, President Vladimir Putin said on Tuesday, referring to disagreements over a joint border and energy deliveries.

"I am sure we will be able to find a way out," Putin told a news conference in Bishkek, the capital of Kyrgyzstan, after meeting his Kyrgyz counterpart Almazbek Atambayev.

Earlier this month, Belarus accused Russia of trying to restore a formal border zone between the two countries, a move it said flouted agreements on freedom of movement and trade.
