MINSK, 7 July (BelTA) – Belarusian President Aleksandr Lukashenko has always demonstrated determination to defend the interests of the Belarusian people, Chairman of the Standing Commission on International Affairs and National Security of the Council of the Republic Sergei Rachkov told the ONT TV channel, BelTA informs.

According to him, the president's Independence Day speech sent a clear signal to the West that the head of state and our country are determined to defend their sovereignty and security.

“Throughout the entire history of independent Belarus, the president has always demonstrated his determination to defend the interests of the Belarusian people. This was in the 1990s, in 2005, 2010, not to mention 2020. Therefore, today it is not about diplomacy, but about preparing to resist an attack that our opponents may be planning,” Sergei Rachkov said.

The senator stressed that today the role of diplomacy is decreasing. “The statements made in the West do not square well with diplomacy and interstate communication. Therefore, today our objective is very clear: we must ensure our security,” he added.
