MINSK, 30 October (BelTA) – A new draft military doctrine has been prepared in Belarus, President Alexander Lukashenko said at the operational meeting of the command staff of the Belarusian Armed Forces on 30 October, BelTA has learned.
The head of state remarked that this document is to be considered at the session of the Security Council by the end of the year.
Apart from that, the Supreme State Council is going to consider a new plan of deploying regional forces by the end of the year. “It is needed to thoroughly analyze the feasibility of this plan,” the President stressed.
“We should not forget that we not only ensure our sovereignty but also maintain close cooperation, especially within the framework of the Union State,” the head of state added.
“Having allies and friendly partners is an important factor for ensuring our military security. Therefore, Belarus views its participation in such interstate associations as an efficient deterrent factor in the military sphere. However, a collective security mechanism should take our national interests into consideration,” Alexander Lukashenko noted.
