Lukashenko responds to Lithuania's threat to stop transit of potash fertilizers

MINSK, 9 August (BelTA) – Belarus will reroute shipments to other ports, to ports in the territory of Russia if Lithuania stops the transit of Belarusian potash fertilizers. Belarus President Aleksandr Lukashenko made the statement during a meeting with representatives of the general public, experts, and mass media titled as the Big Conversation with the President on 9 August, BelTA has learned.

Aleksandr Lukashenko noted: “They've started inventing things. Shot themselves in the foot. And now they want to prevent us from using their ports for shipping chemical potash fertilizers.”

Aleksandr Lukashenko said that Belarus will reroute shipments to other ports, to ports in the Russian territory then. “Listen, we will deliver these volumes. We will load them in Murmansk. Not a problem. And we will deliver them to China via the shortest Northern Sea Route. It is our main market. And to India, the southeast. We have to find a way out of this situation now before we drive each other into a corner. But the ball is on the other side,” he said.
