MINSK, 11 February (BelTA) – Belarus will stay true to its role as a donor of stability, Belarus President Aleksandr Lukashenko said as he addressed the 6th Belarusian People's Congress on 11 February, BelTA has learned.
"It is ironic that confrontation is more beneficial for many today than peace and accord. But it is on the conscience of those politicians who put their restless ambitions above human lives,” Aleksandr Lukashenko said. “I am sure that this is why our repeated calls on the international community to stop the escalation of tensions, for the so-called Helsinki 2 are not trending, as they say now. As I said recently, "the wrong country offered."
"Under these conditions, we reaffirm the role of Belarus as a donor of stability. Despite everything, Europe remains our common home. We can't get away from it, we are the center of Europe," the Belarusian leader stressed.
The president assured that Belarus remains a stable, reliable partner in the field of regional security, ready to actively participate in peacekeeping strategic initiatives.
"We are still prepared to host negotiations on any issues of global and regional security, including arms control," Aleksandr Lukashenko said.
