Belarus president: No country can feel safe from the threat of terrorism

ISTANBUL, 14 April (BelTA) – No country in different parts of the world can feel safe from the threat of terrorism. Belarus President Alexander Lukashenko made the statement in his speech during the 13th summit of the Organization of Islamic Cooperation (OIC) in Istanbul, BelTA has learned.

“At present no country in the West or the East can feel safe from this evil that feeds on disunity and mistrust between countries, nations, and cultures,” stressed the Belarusian leader.

Alexander Lukashenko said it was symbolic that the OIC summit was taking place in Istanbul, a city that has stood at the crossroads of cultures and is the birthplace of various civilizations since times immemorial. “I am convinced that the way to addressing the global tasks the international community faces lies only through their mutual enrichment, through dialogue and cooperation,” said the head of state.

Alexander Lukashenko remarked that the matters raised during the summit are of great current interest and are in tune with Belarus’ foreign policy. Concerns about security and counteraction of modern challenges and threats are shared by all countries regardless of their national composition and religious affiliation. “Take a look at what is going on in the world today. Wars and dissention are rampant. Previously flourishing countries fall to ruins to become sources of chaos and violence and generate major crises. The threat of terrorism is becoming global against the background of rising instability and uncertainty,” stated the Belarus President.

Alexander Lukashenko remarked that it is now that efforts should be combined to fight modern challenges and threats. “However, instead of doing that many prefer flinging accusations at each other. How long can it go on? If the process is not stopped, after some time it can go critical, it can become irreversible and can entail unpredictable consequences,” stated Alexander Lukashenko.
