President 12.09.2019 | 11:29

MINSK, 12 September (BelTA) - Belarus seeks to build good-neighborly and pragmatic relations with the EU which do not imply a choice between East and West, Belarus President Aleksandr Lukashenko said at a ceremony to receive credentials from ambassadors of foreign countries, BelTA has learned.

Aleksandr Lukashenko noted that in recent years Belarus has made significant progress in the dialogue with the European Union, which is one of the most important trading partners for the country, an important source of innovations necessary for modernization and improving the competitiveness of the Belarusian economy.

“We are set to build good-neighborly and pragmatic relations with the union [EU] which do not suggest a choice between East and West. But, the truth is, the European Union does not demand this from us. I am convinced that this would greatly contribute to the progress in the approximation of the European and Eurasian integration processes,” the head of state stressed.
