Lukashenko: Belarus shares SCO’s approaches to international security

MINSK, 24 June (BelTA) – Belarus shares the SCO’s approaches to ensuring international security, Belarus President Alexander Lukashenko said in his speech at the summit of the Heads of State Council of the Shanghai Cooperation Organization (SCO) in Uzbekistan’s Tashkent on 24 June, BelTA has learned.

“You are well aware of the peace-loving and multi-vector foreign policy of Belarus. This policy is aimed at preserving stability and peace in our region. We absolutely share the SCO’s approaches to ensuring international security,” the President said. “Today, when instability is escalating and the number of regional conflicts is on the rise, the unity of states and the resolution to join efforts in addressing global issues are especially important.”

The Belarusian head of state is convinced that the SCO is a crucial negotiations platform for working out the mechanisms of response to modern challenges and threats. “It is especially important to join efforts to eradicate any forms and manifestations of terrorism, extremism, organized crime, and drug trafficking, prevent emergencies and conflicts,” the Belarusian leader emphasized.
