Lukashenko: Belarus' achievements have always irritated the West

MINSK, 25 January (BelTA) – Belarus' achievements have always irritated the West and provoked an inadequate response from them, Belarusian President Aleksandr Lukashenko said at the meeting with the representatives of the National Academy of Sciences of Belarus on 25 January, BelTA informs.

“Historically it has always been like that: our achievements have never made our rivals, especially geopolitical rivals, happy. Science is also a field for competition. Our achievements have always irritated the so-called collective West and provoked an inadequate response and activities from them,” the head of state said. “However, in spite of the sanctions we are dealing with now we have achieved a lot. Right now the situation is even more complicated because of the coronavirus pandemic, a new round of the economic, and political blackmail, the aggravating military hysteria on the Belarusian borders.”

At the same time, Aleksandr Lukashenko remarked that Belarusian scientists have never been afraid of difficulties, they have always been motivated to solve the allegedly impossible tasks.

“We are now witnessing the global changes in the information and political fields. Knowledge and technologies are advancing rapidly. A loser in this race risks to lose everything, including the country. In reality, we do not have a different choice, we must be among the leaders. Dear scientists, this is the question of not only your scientific ambitions but also of the preservation of our statehood and the Belarusian nation. If we fail to reach the leading position, if we stop for a moment, they will ruin us,” the president said.
