MINSK, 16 November (BelTA) – Everyone wants the speediest resolution of the migrant crisis but for the self-exiled Belarusian opposition, Belarusian President Aleksandr Lukashenko said as he hosted a meeting to discuss the situation at the state border on 16 November, BelTA has learned.
"It would seem that all people want the situation to resolve but for the Belarusian opposition self-exiled there [in the EU countries]. After our conversation with Merkel, they just went crazy. They dressed down the German chancellor in every way possible for talking to ‘the dictator',” Aleksandr Lukashenko said.
The head of state wondered what the opposition that fled abroad is primarily concerned about: about the people stuck on the border and the speedy resolution of the situation or about the “fight against the regime”. "Do they care about people and are they ready to use any help today? Or are they mostly concerned about ‘Lukashenko's regime'? Well, the answer is obvious. Lukashenko's regime. Dear ladies and gentlemen from the opposition, self-exiled and handled primarily by the United States, you will have to deal with this regime," the president said.
