MINSK, 15 May (BelTA) - National togetherness and unity are the bedrock of stability of any society, Director – Editor-in-Chief of the Belarus Segodnya publishing house Dmitry Zhuk said during the Editors' Club program on Belarus 1 TV channel on 14 May, BelTA has learned.
The program touched on the situation in France where the situation is beginning to escalate over cases of racial and religious discrimination. "Today we have to reconsider many of the views that were imposed on us 10 years ago. Multiculturalism was considered a panacea. No, it turns out that national interests are more important. National togetherness and unity are the bedrock of stability of any society that is shielded against foreign, let's say, cultures and religions," said Dmitry Zhuk.
It is not easy for states to ensure the peaceful coexistence of different cultures and religions, Chairman of Belteleradiocompany Ivan Eismont added. The Belarusian authorities, he noted, have pursued a reasonable policy in this regard.
