MINSK, 6 July (BelTA) – People in the West have the wrong idea of Belarus due to NATO, member of the Communist Party of Switzerland Davide Rossi told reporters, BelTA has learned.
“I have already been to Belarus in 2013. The opinion about Belarus in the West is erroneous and is shaped by NATO. Not everyone in the world thinks so, only those 30-40 Western countries believe that Belarus and Russia are monsters and aggressors. And the other 160 countries, including China, Brazil, do not support this opinion. They have a huge population, so the majority of people in the world does not stick to this opinion. I am sure that as time goes by, this erroneous opinion will be washed away from European minds and Europeans will take a sober look at the things that are happening now,” Davide Rossi said.
The expert is sure that peace will come someday. “However, unfortunately, the countries that support NATO are not yet ready to embark on peace talks. In other words, they believe that they do not need to come to the negotiating table, they plan to continue sending weapons to Ukraine. Therefore, now we are in a very difficult situation, this armed conflict can spill over to other countries and continents. I hope that your people, my party comrades and all those who support us will be able to make a meaningful contribution to the peace process,” he added.
Members of the Standing Commission on International Affairs of the House of Representatives are meeting with member of the Communist Party of Switzerland Davide Rossi. Professor Davide Rossi came to Belarus to take part in Independence Day celebrations. In addition, he is set to visit government agencies of Belarus and to meet with the leadership of the Communist Party of Belarus to discuss ways to promote Belarus-Switzerland dialogue.
