DUSHANBE, 11 October (BelTA) – Belarus is ready to exploit the opportunities that emerge as a result of crises in order to become stronger. Belarus President Aleksandr Lukashenko made the statement after official talks with Tajikistan President Emomali Rahmon, BelTA has learned.

Aleksandr Lukashenko said: “You and I have been working together for decades. We are already ‘elders'. Well, you are the doyen. You are now the key person in the CIS. All of us recognize it. I am close to you over there, this is why a lot will depend on us with regard to the development of the Commonwealth of Independent States, in our post-Soviet republics. The time is complicated. But crises exist so that we could exploit them to become stronger. We are ready for it. I am convinced that Tajikistan is, too.”
