Lukashenko views women as best diplomatic weapon

MINSK, 5 March (BelTA) - Women are our most effective diplomatic weapon, Belarusian President Aleksandr Lukashenko said at a meeting with activists of the Belarusian Women's Union on 5 March, BelTA has learned.

“Women play an important role in strengthening peace and security (if there were no you, men would have started war long time ago even in Belarus), interethnic and interconfessional dialogue. I have always said and I will reiterate that you are our most effective diplomatic weapon. I am proud of the fact that many women in Belarus hold high positions in government bodies, public organizations, and run companies. They prove their competence, professionalism and devotion to the Motherland in every area,” Aleksandr Lukashenko emphasized.

The president said he has always respected the women who lead large organizations. “I feel very sorry for our women having such a load on their shoulders. Of course, people are different, but I am sure that the overwhelming majority of women will never betray and will never break the law. Women are far less corrupt than men. That is why I have high respect and trust in you, women,” he said.  

All the talk about gender inequality is irrelevant for Belarus, the head of state added. “The woman’s position in the Belarusian society is determined by her professionalism, education, respect and caring attitude on the part of men. The state creates all appropriate conditions for this,” Aleksandr Lukashenko said.
