Lukashenko: Belarusians should continue their ancestors' policy of tolerance

MINSK, 1 September (BelTA) - The course of Belarus and its people is sacred and we should continue the policy of tolerance, we have inherited from our ancestors, Belarusian President Aleksandr Lukashenko said as he spoke at the open lesson "Historical memory - the road to the future" on 1 September, BelTA has learned.

“Our path is a sacred one. We need to stay committed to the policy of tolerance we have inherited from our ancestors. We will always follow this course. If someone armed from inside or outside tries to break this course, we will respond. As it has been done recently,” the Belarusian leader stressed.

“I repeat: we, Belarusians, do not need a war. We have experienced too much during our centuries-long history. We have suffered enough. The limit of wars and revolutions is exhausted,” said Aleksandr Lukashenko. “We have all noted in the first part of our lesson that our roots are in our peacefulness, in our goodness. We have never set a goal to take away something from someone, to take away someone's lands, to take away someone's wealth. We have never done anything like that. We will stay committed to this course,” the head of state said.

The president stated that Belarus is in the epicenter of the confrontation between the West and the East. “To preserve ourselves, our land, we need to remember both our and others' lessons of history. That is what the lessons of history are for! For the present day. They teach the main thing: there is no sovereignty under foreign rule. We must govern ourselves. Without sovereignty, there is no home, no family, no future. Otherwise, they will again teach you Polish or some other language, and you will not dare say anything in Russian or Belarusian,” the Belarusian leader said.
