Big Conversation seen as foundation of Belarus president's address to nation, parliament

MINSK, 1 March (BelTA) – The Big Conversation will become the foundation for preparing the Belarus president's annual address to the nation and the parliament. Belarus President Alexander Lukashenko made the statement as he met with representatives of the general public and expert community, Belarusian and foreign mass media on 1 March, BelTA has learned.

The head of state noted that today's conversation, which involves everyone – citizens, authorities, representatives of Belarusian and international media communities, and experts of all kinds – is hugely important. “Everything to be said in this hall today will become the foundation for preparing an event of national importance – the president's annual address to the nation and the parliament. We will have to come up with an objective evaluation of the most discussed topics, which particularly strongly worry people and the society. Which means they need explaining and an open discussion,” Alexander Lukashenko pointed out. “This is why the meeting is being broadcast live to enable an honest and sincere conversation in order to reduce the number of consequent complaints about something being allegedly cut out or cut short. We are also going to replenish the lack of truthful information about some matters.”

At the same time Alexander Lukashenko noted that “if our society, experts, reporters, simply forward-minded and honored people need such a conversation, I am always ready for it.” “Certainly, without going to the extreme because otherwise I'd become some kind of lecturer. Although I should say it is sometimes useful so that our people would know and understand the policy the government pursues,” the head of state noted.
