MINSK, 14 January (BelTA) – Belarus' policy is absolutely in lien with the national interests, Belarusian Ambassador to Armenia Alexander Konyuk said in an interview with ArmInfo news company, BelTA has learned.
"Belarus has managed to preserve a lot of things from the Soviet Union. We have presented the industrial infrastructure and then modernized it on new principles. We've put in a lot into education, agriculture. Some really don't like all this. They wanted to destroy us, roughly speaking, to wipe their feet on us. They are not happy with the fact that some country in the center of Europe conducts the policy exclusively in line with its national interests," Ambassador Aleksandr Konyuk emphasized.
In his words, all sorts of non-governmental and non-profit organizations have been closed down across Belarus. “They were engaged in all kinds of things but not the ones written in their statutes and were funded from abroad,” he said.
The ambassador urged to be careful in creating an inclusive social capital, and to help the organizations that really need such assistance. “They made an attempt at a color revolution to destroy our country. They failed!” the diplomat said.
