MINSK, 20 March (BelTA) – It is still unclear how the financial and economic situation will be developing in the world. Belarus is analyzing it, Belarus President Aleksandr Lukashenko told reporters during the visit to Adani Company that leads security, healthcare and scientific industry on 20 March, BelTA informs.

“I do not want to utter platitudes. I will just share my opinion. As for the financial and economic crisis, we already have one foot in it. And now, given high volatility and fluctuations, we are trying to pull it back,” Aleksandr Lukashenko said. “The key question is whether we will be able to pull back the first foot or the other foot will be stuck as well.”

According to the president, it is still unclear how much the economic situation in the world will worsen. Maybe, countries still have a chance to return to the yesterday's level of development. “We need to analyze things, and we are currently doing it.
