MINSK, 6 July (BelTA) - The threat of the global arms control system being destroyed has already become a reality, Belarus President Aleksandr Lukashenko said at a ceremony to honor the graduates of higher military schools and senior officers, BelTA learned.
“The threat of the global arms control system, including nuclear one, being destroyed is a reality today. This is despite the fact that 75 years ago everyone knew what war was,” Aleksandr Lukashenko.
He noted that the clashes of geopolitical interests of the superpowers fuel simmering local conflicts and create new ones. Moreover, there are no acceptable universal recipes for their resolution, the head of state said.
“It is obvious that the militarization of Eastern Europe and the intensification of military activity, including near our borders, do not lead to anything good. Risks and challenges in the military sphere are growing, trust between countries is being undermined. Against this background economic, demographic and environmental problems will be exacerbating,” the president is convinced. At the same time, Aleksandr Lukashenko stressed that Belarus is an active participant in the process of strengthening international security.
