Lukashenko calls for new UN debate to establish dialogue between global players

NEW YORK, 29 September (BelTA) – Speaking at the general debate of the 70th session of the UN General Assembly in New York Belarus President Alexander Lukashenko called for a new debate in the United Nations in order to establish a dialogue between global players, BelTA informs.

According to Alexander Lukashenko, today the world has confronted absolutely new geopolitical phenomena and military conflicts. “The level of tension in international relations is almost unprecedented. Unanswered threats are coming to the fore with ever greater clarity. Focusing on minor disputes over secondary issues, the global community has overlooked the emergence of aggressive terrorist states,” the Belarusian leader said.

“The entire system of international security is going through a severe crisis. Loss of mutual trust between global players, unwillingness to compromise and partial return to the bloc-type confrontation have essentially put the world on the verge of a new war,” stated the President of Belarus.

Alexander Lukashenko stressed that efforts to impose upon other countries a certain development model continue unabated. “Where does it lead to? As a result of foreign intervention, export of 'color' revolutions and controlled regime change, previously stable countries have been plunged into chaos and anarchy,” the Belarusian head of state said.

“Instead of promised democracy and prosperity people in these countries experience extreme suffering and are forced to flee. Crowds of migrants are besieging Europe today. And this too has become an acute international problem,” said the Belarusian leader.

“Today, we increasingly depend on each other. Actions of one country have direct implications for the interests of many others. There are no more invulnerable countries,” the Belarusian President believes.

“We must honestly admit that there is currently no effective system of checks and balances. The states that claim global leadership cannot, unfortunately, escape the temptation to use force and economic blackmail to promote their own interests. The world has come dangerously close to de-facto renunciation of the principles of international law enshrined in the UN Charter,” the Belarusian leader stressed.

“This is why I am strongly convinced in the need to have a broad discussion in the United Nations about the principles of future coexistence of states and peoples. I mentioned it before, but I want to stress it once again: the Organization must not be turned into a place for mutual accusations and confrontation of states,” Alexander Lukashenko stated.

“There is no alternative to dialogue! We will have to deal with our problems collectively. One can certainly build new walls and draw division lines, but this will not make the problems disappear,” the Belarusian head of state is convinced.
