MINSK, 4 October (BelTA) – Belarusian President Aleksandr Lukashenko said how the dialogue and relations with Russia are built in an interview with CNN, BelTA has learned.
CNN journalist Matthew Chance asked what Belarus promised to Russia in return for diplomatic and financial support.
“Pardon me Matthew, you have an Anglo-Saxon mentality. President Putin and I, or any of our officials, never talk like that. We are fraternal nations. We come from the same origin, Russians and Belarusians,” Aleksandr Lukashenko stressed.
“You probably know better than I because you're looking at us all from the sidelines. We are no different, inside and out. We have a common policy and common goals. And we move along the same road towards these goals. We don't need promises. We are nations that are very close to each other and we can build the future without promises, and even you can't stop us,” the Belarusian leader added.
