Lukashenko: The address to the nation reiterates the problems that have to be resolved this year

MINSK, 29 April (BelTA) – The address to the nation and the parliament emphasizes the problems that have to be resolved this year. The statement was made by Belarus President Alexander Lukashenko in his address to the nation and the parliament on 29 April, BelTA has learned.

“I understand that today’s talk in the Oval Hall will be analyzed from every angle, there will be a lot of discussions in mass media, in homes, at enterprises… Anticipating all of that, I would like to ask you to bear in mind that this year is very intense for us and the address will be peculiar. It will be up-to-date and certainly will take into account all the measures that will be implemented during the year,” said the head of state.

Alexander Lukashenko pointed out that events relating to the 70th anniversary of the Victory in the Great Patriotic War will be seriously analyzed soon. “There are too many speculations, attempts to rewrite the history, put the blame for that war on us. The accusations come close to claiming we were the reason for it. A lot will be said about that in the future,” noted the President.

Apart from that, an army parade will take place in Belarus to celebrate the anniversary of the Victory. “Naturally the government has to give its own definition and state its attitude to the event,” he said.

The President also reminded about the promise to hold at least three government conferences during the year to discuss matters of vital importance for the country’s development. In particular, the government conferences will be dedicated to discussing the development problems of the agriculture, the utilities industry, and the education system. Relevant working groups have been created to analyze the situation and submit proposals. Alexander Lukashenko remarked that the government conferences will be held to determine whether the reforms had been in error or not.

“I am not going to hide it: it will be the election agenda of the president and the government. They will briefly accumulate all the issues that we have resolved, will demonstrate the heights we have reached, and most importantly they will set the goals that the government vows to resolve within at least the next five years or maybe later,” noted Alexander Lukashenko.

The President also added that he will be ready to answer questions of members of the parliament after the address is delivered.
