Lukashenko: Belarus is a peaceful and friendly country, but it can defend itself

MINSK, 9 May (BelTA) – Belarus is a peaceful and friendly country, but it can defend itself, Belarus President Alexander Lukashenko said during the flower ceremony at the Victory Memorial in Minsk as Belarus celebrated the 72nd anniversary of the Great Victory on 9 May, BelTA has learned.

“Our country has never demonstrated aggression and never will. We have shown that Belarus is a peaceful and friendly state. This does not mean, however, that it will not be able to defend itself. We do not need what belongs to others and we will not give away what belongs to us. This is what our heroic forefathers taught us, and we will always remember about this,” the Belarusian leader said.

The president congratulated the compatriots and guests of Belarus on the Great Victory and wished happiness and peace to everybody.
