ASTANA, 14 October (BelTA) – The United States must not dance to the tune of some politicians, who have lost their reason, in the issue of nuclear weapons, Belarusian President Aleksandr Lukashenko said in an interview with the U.S. broadcaster NBC in Astana on 14 October, BelTA has learned.
"Do you know who the main proponent of nuclear weapons is... Can you guess? I'll tell you. It is Poland. It provokes you, the United States, to take some action in terms of nuclear weapons. Don't fall for that trick. You are a large technological country. There is no need to dance to the tune of the politicians who have taken leave of their senses," the Belarusian head of state said.
"Nuclear weapons must remain in warehouses where they are. Because if only nuclear weapons are moved, let's say, to Poland, there will be a chain reaction. Reciprocal steps will follow. So don't go for it. We need to calm down and sit down at the negotiating table," he said.
