MINSK, 26 July (BelTA) – The critical situation on the global food market is getting worse, Belarusian President Aleksandr Lukashenko said at a conference to discuss the progress in the harvest campaign on 26 July, BelTA has learned.
According to the head of state, the critical situation in the world food market is only getting worse. "The footage of burning wheat fields set on fire by helicopters of our southern neighbor does not add optimism to anyone. But this is only the tip of the iceberg," the president said.
"The mindless sanctions on fertilizers and energy and the severance of transport links have put many countries on the verge of survival. Winter is coming. Those who will not be able to feed themselves are in for a cold and hungry winter," Aleksandr Lukashenko stressed.
