MOSCOW, 3 November (BelTA) - The use of nuclear weapons is unacceptable, State Secretary of the Security Council of Belarus Aleksandr Volfovich told the media after the 10th meeting of the secretaries of CIS security councils in Moscow on 3 November, BelTA has learned.
“Issues of nuclear safety were touched upon at the meeting. Today there is a lot of talk about the use of tactical nuclear weapons. It is inadmissible. It does not matter whether these are tactical or strategic nuclear weapons. This will lead to irreversible consequences, the death of civilization,” said Aleksandr Volfovich.
In his words, Belarus has been fighting the consequences of the Chernobyl accident for 36 years already. The consequences of the use of nuclear weapons would be much worse. “What will happen if tactical nuclear weapons are really used? The entire Europe will suffer. It will affect not only the territory of Russia, Ukraine or Belarus. This flame will affect all the countries of Europe, and maybe even farther,” the state secretary of the Security Council of Belarus said.
The meeting of the secretaries of the CIS security councils highlighted topical issues of international and regional security, including the situation in the post-Soviet space in the context of Russia's special military operation in Ukraine. The participants of the meeting discussed the issues related to combating destructive activities of foreign NGOs, glorification of fascism and falsification of history in the CIS countries. Problems of nuclear security and nonproliferation of nuclear weapons were also on the agenda.
