MINSK, 16 September (BelTA) – The Ministry of Foreign Affairs needs to respond adequately to habitual sanctions and new challenges, Belarus President Aleksandr Lukashenko said as he met with Belarusian high-ranking officials on 16 September, BelTA has learned.
Aleksandr Lukashenko believes: “In recent years we have forgotten what is the unfriendly policy of our neighbors like. Their anti-Belarusian essence did not go anywhere however and has become apparent to the full extent. Moreover, we have seen an attempt on our sovereignty and even territorial integrity.”
