MINSK, 30 June (BelTA) – Belarus acts as a balancer of interests of two civilizations in the central part of Europe, Chair of the Council of the Republic of the National Assembly of Belarus Natalya Kochanova said at the closing meeting of the eighth session of the Council of the Republic of the National Assembly of the seventh convocation, BelTA has learned.
“Today's world has entered a new historical phase that is shaped by cruel, and sometimes simply inhuman laws. The international law and diplomacy do not work, humanistic ideals go into oblivion. Overall distrust, aggression and hatred are rapidly surging. The struggle for resources guaranteeing countries and peoples their right to the future is getting tougher. We are witnessing what our president has repeatedly warned about - the next round of the universal struggle between good and evil. The unipolar world order is coming to an end, and humanity is already standing on the verge of a new geopolitical system,” Natalya Kochanova said.
The speaker stressed that every day it becomes more and more obvious that there are constructive forces in the world, and there are destructive forces that do not want to build a fair community of free nations. “They want to keep everything as it is in order to preserve and strengthen the existing unfair, so-called democratic or liberal system. Being located in the central part of Europe, Belarus is the junction that is destined to be a balancer of interests of two civilizations. A testimony to that are regular sanctions and restrictive measures aimed at destroying the socio-economic stability in our country. These are also outright attempts to drag us into an open confrontation, to unleash another armed confrontation on the long-suffering Belarusian soil. All this contradicts the peace-loving good-neighborly policy that Belarus has always pursued and is pursuing in relation to other countries and peoples.
