MINSK, 11 February (BelTA) – Desire for neutrality enshrined in the Constitution of the Republic of Belarus does not correspond to the current situation, Minister of Foreign Affairs Vladimir Makei said as he addressed the 6th Belarusian People's Congress in Minsk on 11 February, BelTA has learned.
"We were at the epicenter of two world wars. We continue to be at the epicenter of world events and interests of global players now," the minister noted.
“What's next and what's the way out?” Vladimir Makei asked rhetorical questions.
"In my opinion, the desire for neutrality enshrined in the Constitution does not correspond to the current situation. In today's globalized highly-internationalized world, neutrality in its classical sense no longer exists. I suggest this aspect be taken into account in the work on amendments to the Constitution,” the minister said.
