MINSK, 22 June (BelTA) – The global developments related to the conceptual reformatting of the existing world order and the rise of multipolarity increase international and regional security risks, State Secretary of the Security Council of the Republic of Belarus Aleksandr Volfovich said at the opening ceremony of the First International Security Industry Exhibition “National Security. Belarus 2022” in Minsk on 22 June, BelTA has learned.
“We are witnessing a significant increase in military spending and the number of military drills, the dismantling of the arms control system. The authority of the most important security organizations is degrading, as their negotiation platforms are used for advancing the interests of individual countries and unions. The degradation of the international security system poses a threat to all states,” Aleksandr Volfovich said.
According to the Security Council chief, Belarus is investing significant efforts in strengthening national security. It updates its legal framework, improves the security infrastructure. This work is highlighted by the international security industry exhibition, which is the first of its kind integrated international event to demonstrate the most relevant and promising technologies in this area.
“I strongly believe that this event will help create an effective platform to discuss national security, mechanisms and terms of industrial, scientific and technological development, international cooperation and interaction,” Aleksandr Volfovich added.
