MINSK, 10 June (BelTA) – Belarus will find allies and support in the world and will emerge as the winner from this situation, Chairman of the Standing Committee on International Affairs of the House of Representatives of the Belarusian National Assembly Andrei Savinykh told journalists on 10 June, BelTA has learned.
“Analyzing the situation, we can say that Belarus has been caught up in the crossfire, just like it happened on multiple occasions in the past. The collective West has set out to destroy the entire system of international relations, including the foundation of international law itself,” Andrei Savinykh said.
This system has its roots in the middle of the 17th century, with the Peace of Westphalia, he pointed out. “The last cornerstones that make up the backbone of this system were the Yalta Conference and Helsinki Final Act of 1975. The latter provided for the inviolability of borders in Europe after World War II,” Andrei Savinykh noted. “And now we see attempts to renounce this system. As a result, the supremacy of international law, nations' sovereignty, and the principle of non-intervention in domestic affairs of sovereign states are being ignored. Belarus has been caught up in the crossfire. However, there is one thing that escapes the attention of the collective West. They represent less than a third of the world. There are many countries that do not support them and are even ready to resist these tendencies. There is one simple reason for that: such disintegration of international law is a threat to the entire international community. This is why we are sure that Belarus will find allies and support in the world and will emerge as the winner from this situation,” he believes.
