Lukashenko: 2019 European Games will become serious test for Belarus

MINSK, 21 April (BelTA) – The Second European Games in 2019 will be a serious exam for Belarus, Belarus President Alexander Lukashenko said during his annual State of the Nation Address on 21 April, BelTA has learned.

The head of state emphasized a high level of confidence in Belarus on the part of the international Olympic movement. “We must show the world our high sports potential, show our rich cultural traditions, hospitality, kindness, spiritual heritage and high sports achievements,” Alexander Lukashenko said.

Belarus was chosen to host the Second European Games in 2019 after a vote at the 45th General Assembly of the European Olympic Committees in Minsk in October 2016. The First European Games were held in Azerbaijan in June 2015. Belarus placed 7th with a total of 43 medals.
