MOSCOW, 17 February (BelTA) – Belarus fully abides by its defense and security agreements with Russia, Belarusian President Aleksandr Lukashenko said at the talks with Russian President Vladimir Putin on 17 February, BelTA has learned.
“All our agreements on defense and security for last year that we discussed quite recently, three months ago, were fulfilled by Belarus by 100%. And even over-fulfilled. I will tell you later what is being done in this regard,” the head of state said.
There is also progress in the microelectronics industry: “We were concerned that we were too dependent on imports. In a week I am having a meeting on the topic that we discussed in Sochi. We have retained the microelectronics industry that we inherited from the Soviet Union. We have also reached agreements with the Russian companies that were set up in the Soviet period. And today experts say: Don't worry, tell Vladimir Vladimirovich that we will do everything. Well, the sizes will be bigger for the time being... We know how to move forward. This is the most important thing. People know their job.”
