Lukashenko: Power players should account for their actions in Arab world

NEW YORK, 27 September (BelTA) – Speaking at the plenary meeting of the 2015 Sustainable Development Summit in New York Belarus President Alexander Lukashenko said that the power players should account for their actions in the Arab world, BelTA informs.

Alexander Lukashenko stressed that the example of open political rudeness, lying and crimes against humanity is on the surface.

The President of Belarus suggested recalling the recent events. “Under the pretext of Iraq having chemical weapons, the known states decided to democratize the country. Where are these chemical weapons? Where is the democracy in Iraq? For what was the President of Iraq killed? How is the country doing in general, and what is the future of the Iraqi people? Do people live better now? No,” said the Belarusian leader.

“Did you, the guilty, say that it was a mistake and it would be better to stop? No, you moved further. You started with Tunisia and ended in Libya. The scenario is the same. You crucified President Gaddafi and destroyed the country. Is Libya better off now? No. Is Libya a cohesive state today?” the President of Belarus noted.

“Did you, gentlemen, say it was time to stop? No, you are on Syria now. Why? Why are you killing people? Why are you throwing a president out of office? How does this concern you? Moreover, by destroying Syria you have been destroying the first traces of our civilization,” said the Belarusian head of state.

“Please use this rostrum of the UN General Assembly and tell the world community what you want, what you are striving for,” Alexander Lukashenko stressed.
