MINSK, 11 January (BelTA) – Belarus will be sorely tested in the next few years and the country should stand ready to respond to it. Belarus President Alexander Lukashenko made the statement during the reception held on 11 January in anticipation of Old New Year celebrations, BelTA has learned.

Alexander Lukashenko remarked: “The year will be different for all of us. For some it will be easy, for some it will be hard. But I dare say that not only 2019 but 2020, too will not be simple for our country, for our people. Those are not simple years because, sincerely speaking, we will be sorely tested in these two years. If we talk about specifics, whether we deserve the independence we talk about all the time or not will be tested.”

“And we should stand ready to answer that question. I am absolutely convinced we will find a worthy response,” Alexander Lukashenko stated. “The year will be a special one for sports, too. I've talked about it. The year will not be easy, yet it will be interesting as a reporter put it a short while ago.”
