MINSK, 4 October (BelTA) – Belarus has enough partners and friends in the world to manage without the European Union, Belarusian President Aleksandr Lukashenko said in the interview with CNN, BelTA informs.
“Listen, we have survived without the EU and we will go on without them for many years to come. The world is huge without you. It is a small world, but it is huge. Russia alone can consume everything we need to sell (selling our products is the most important thing for us). There is also China with 1.5 billion population, they are our friends, and we'll sell our products there,” the Belarusian leader said.
“We will sell to Turkey, Iran, Pakistan and India, we have normal relations with them. We can manage without you and the United States, and will continue to do so,” the head of state said.
