ASTANA, 14 October (BelTA) – There is a possibility to reduce the impact of external shocks on the CIS countries, Belarusian President Aleksandr Lukashenko said at the CIS summit in Astana on 14 October, BelTA has learned.
“The economic situation is complicated. Ill-conceived actions of individual governments, primarily in the West, have caused significant damage to the global economy. By the example of Belarus and Russia, you have seen how fast traditional sales markets can close for our products and critical imports become unavailable, how fast the established forms of interstate settlements, investment, and much more can become unaccessible,” the Belarusian leader said.
“Yet, we have everything in place to minimize the impact of global upheavals and unfriendly moves of aggressively minded states. We just need to skillfully use these opportunities,” Aleksandr Lukashenko emphasized.
