Lukashenko urges balanced foreign policy for Belarus

MINSK, 7 October (BelTA) – Belarus needs to pursue a balanced foreign policy, Belarus President Alexander Lukashenko said when addressing the Belarusian Parliament on 7 October, BelTA has learned.

“We must stop thinking along the lines ‘either with us or against us’. In foreign policy, given our capabilities and resources, we must act very carefully so as not to make other countries angry, especially neighbors. We will benefit only from a balanced policy. Because we are in the midst of the events that are unfolding around us today,” the head of state said.

“To take up guns and go into the woods to become partisans is not the best thing to do. Thinking that the West is our friends and Russia is an enemy is stupid and short-sighted,” Alexander Lukashenko said.
