MINSK, 29 November (BelTA) – The United States and the UK are hatching plans to destroy the European Union, with the participation of Poland, Belarusian President Aleksandr Lukashenko said during the meeting at the strategic control center of the Defense Ministry on 29 November, BelTA has learned.
"The situation on the western border is not easy. You can see that Polish small-minded politicians have gone on tour around countries. Yesterday we paid attention as to where Morawiecki [Polish prime minister] went to. To the UK. I am sure, they are hatching plans to destroy, within a year or two, the European Union at the behest of the United States," the head of state said.
"The Americans do not need partners who can rival them," the Belarusian leader stressed.
The head of state noted that as the EU introduced its own currency, the euro, it created a threat to the dollar, and gave a start to the problems in the Euro-Atlantic bloc. "We understand it. We do not care now whether it is the euro or the dollar," the president stated.
"Therefore, I am sure that it was not by chance that the UK left the European Union, because it did not benefit from it. So now it is on Poland. Some are already beginning to say it openly that if the EU stops subsidies (billions of euros) then Poland does not need the EU. Therefore, everything is being done to destroy the European Union," Aleksandr Lukashenko said.
