MP: We will not allow to draw Belarus into the conflict

MINSK, 11 October (BelTA) – We will not allow to draw Belarus into the conflict and stir up tension here, Deputy Chairman of the Standing Committee on National Security of the House of Representatives Igor Martynov told a BelTA correspondent.

“We have always defended the borders of Belarus. And we will take all the necessary measures to prevent Belarus from being drawn into the military conflict, we will not let the situation be destabilized,” Igor Martynov said.

On 10 October the Belarusian head of state held a meeting on security issues. Aleksandr Lukashenko instructed the Defense Ministry and the State Security Committee to work out proposals to keep the situation under control and respond to possible developments. The president stressed that Belarus, if necessary, will be able to give an adequate response to any opponent.

“The head of state, as the commander-in-chief of the Armed Forces, directly gives instructions, pays the greatest attention to this matter. The president has repeatedly noted that Belarus has never been and will not be an aggressor. We have never claimed anyone's territory. At the same time, we will not allow anyone to invade us or drag us into conflicts. We are absolutely capable of doing it. There is a regional group of forces, as well as the Armed Forces of Belarus that guard our borders,” the MP added.
