MINSK, 20 February (BelTA) – Belarusian President Aleksandr Lukashenko will host a Security Council meeting to discuss amendments to the national security concept and the law on people's militia, BelTA has learned.
The current national security concept was approved in November 2010.
The updated version of Belarus' national security concept was discussed in September 2022 at Aleksandr Lukashenko's meeting with State Secretary of the Security Council of Belarus Aleksandr Volfovich. “Before we discuss it at the Security Council I would like to ask you to make sure that the document is absolutely overt. There is no need to conceal anything pursuing some political or even economic motives. We must honestly describe the existing risks, threats, and our response to them, so that our neighbors and others know how we will react and will not say that it was a surprise for them. Do not hide anything. Everything must be done candidly,” the Belarusian leader stressed.
“We must clearly spell everything out so that everyone, especially our society, knows in advance how we will defend ourselves, how we will fight off, how we will act,” the head of state added.
