Lukashenko reveals details of his packed schedule during visit to Russia

ST. PETERSBURG, 29 January (BelTA) – We did some serious work together with Russian President Vladimir Putin in recent days, Belarusian President Aleksandr Lukashenko said at a meeting of the Supreme State Council of the Union State in St. Petersburg, BelTA has learned.

"We have really worked very hard these last two days. I can say we covered the issues from the South Pole to the North Pole. We also discussed the problems of Antarctica. Russia is creating more comfortable conditions for the work of its researcher and launched a new wintering complex there. But the most important thing is that we cooperate closely there. Belarusians work together with Russians. Our station is nearby. All kinds of assistance, both scientific and routine, are provided to the Belarusian specialists who are stationed there," the head of state said.

Aleksandr Lukashenko continued: "Then we moved from the south to the north. We analyzed the events that are taking place in the world. The efforts by Russia and Belarus, the People's Republic of China... Russia is at the forefront of these efforts. It bears the brunt of this burden and takes more blows than anyone."

The president stressed that the advent of a multipolar world and the reluctance of the current monopolist to give up its positions lead to conflicts in different parts of the world. "The Houthis, and the Middle East, the South China Sea, the problems with Taiwan… These all herald the emergence of a multipolar world. As the Russian foreign minister said, the monopolist does not want this. So they are trying to maintain a unipolar world by various methods. They have gone as far as armed conflicts," Alexander Lukashenko said.

According to him, economic cooperation, including with the countries of Asia and Africa, was also discussed during the talks with Vladimir Putin: "We also discussed work in Asia, in Africa, where we are welcome. They're really waiting for us there. First of all, the Russian Federation with great opportunities."

Aleksandr Lukashenko also noted the work to promote cargo transportation along the Northern Sea Route. "We would very much like this program to go faster. It would be easier for us to work," he stressed.

"As you can see, there is a whole range of issues, stretching from south to north," the president summed up.
