President Dodon wants Moldova to be similar to Belarus

MINSK, 12 July (BelTA) – Moldova should be similar to Belarus, Moldova President Igor Dodon said in an interview with the Belarus 1 TV Channel, BelTA has learned.

“At all meetings with voters over the past three or four years, I have been saying that I want Moldova to be like Belarus. The country needs a strong leader, a rigid vertical of power. It is necessary to get the economy in order, and restore all the good things that existed in the Soviet Union (you have managed to preserve them, and in our country everything was destroyed). We should be friends with everyone,” Igor Dodon noted.

The head of state said that Moldova will soon be able to strengthen the institute of presidency to get the country in order.

“I believe that we can follow Belarus’ example in many areas, first of all, in the construction of public policy (presidential country, the powers of the president). Then everything will work fine, and there will be no more anarchy – this is not democracy, this is anarchy. There is no anarchy in Belarus, and this is a good thing,” the Moldovan leader stressed.

Moldova would also like to follow Belarus’ example in terms of economic achievements. “You have preserved everything that was created in the Soviet Union. You did not close the collective farms. You have preserved large farms and now provide support to them. Belarus has a well-developed production sector, and not only in agriculture, and a large industrial sector. You have preserved things that we have destroyed,” Igor Dodon added.

The president praised Belarus’ achievements in the social sector, construction, and development of infrastructure. “I believe that Belarus is an example for us to follow,” he stressed.
