MINSK, 7 December (BelTA) – Relations between Belarus and Serbia as well as between the nations and leaders of the two countries remain friendly, Belarusian President Aleksandr Lukashenko said as he met with Honorary Consul of Belarus in Belgrade, Chairman of the Group of Friendship with Belarus in the Serbian Parliament Dragomir Karic on 7 December, BelTA has learned.
“As far as the work with Serbia is concerned, please give my best wishes to the President [Aleksandar Vucic]. We have always been and will remain reliable friends. Both to our brother Vucic, and the Serbian people,” the Belarusian leader said.
Aleksandr Lukashenko assured that Belarus has always been determined to support Serbia and the Serbian people as much as possible. “We also feel this support from Serbia. The main thing now is to survive the hard times,” the Belarusian leader said.
“That is right,” Dragomir Karic agreed.
“So as not to let anyone bring us to our knees,” the head of state said.
“Absolutely right,” the honorary consul responded.
Aleksandr Lukashenko recalled that Serbia had gone through hard times as well. “You and I saw it with our own eyes when everything was broken, bombed. It was hard to imagine that Belgrade was bombed. Having gone through those hard times, we have to withstand. I think we will succeed,” he said.
“I am sure about it. First of all, I would like to wish you strong health from my big family. For your courage, for what you have been doing for your people. This is done not just for your people but for international law and other nations,” Dragomir Karic said.
