MINSK, 28 June (BelTA) - For Belarus it is important to integrate into a new model whatever way the world goes, Belarusian President Aleksandr Lukashenko said at the National Ball of University Graduates in Minsk on 28 June, BelTA has learned.
"You have a whole life ahead of you," Aleksandr Lukashenko said as he addressed the graduates. “I don't know if this is good or bad, but you are starting your adult life in the era of global, tectonic changes. A new world is being born before your eyes, the old one is collapsing. In this turbulent process, Belarus is still an island of tranquility but it is rocking on the waves of the world storm. Where this storm will take us all is up to us."
According to the head of state, young, ambitious, confident people need such a challenge. "Because anything involving risks is also a huge opportunity. For you, they are primarily associated with personal and professional growth. For the country it is important to integrate into a new model, whatever way the world goes, not to be left on the sidelines, to strengthen the state positions in the international arena," the president said.
Aleksandr Lukashenko stressed that young people play the most important role in this process. "The future is certainly yours," he said.
