Lukashenko convenes large meeting with national security agencies

MINSK, 20 February (BelTA) – Belarusian President Aleksandr Lukashenko convened a large meeting with the senior staff of the national security agencies in Minsk on 20 February, BelTA has learned. 

"We are going to discuss the most pressing issues in the field of national security candidly and, most importantly, in a manly manner. We will also assess the real situation in Belarus and around it as objectively as possible," the head of state said as he opened the meeting.

The president stressed that the participants to the meeting, each at their own level, know the situation. "Let's look at the situation through the prism of existential threats. The threats that did not arise today or yesterday. You know that it is not enough to see them. It is important to understand the global political situation, to objectively assess the causes and prerequisites. Especially now, when the world has again come to the brink of the abyss," the head of state said.

Aleksandr Lukashenko noted the need to compare notes, to assess how prepared the country's law enforcement and security agencies are for possible provocations and unconventional situations during the upcoming political campaigns, taking into account the situation in the region and in the world. "We know our strong points but it is more important to see where we need to improve, where we need to step up in the light of the current realities. These are the issues that the key ministers will highlight in their reports. We must be as ready as possible to neutralize risks and threats," the Belarusian leader said.
