The president noted that the work to strengthen the country's defense capabilities is ongoing.

“We have set up a national military school and established the process of training specialists. It is no coincidence that the Belarusian army ranks 53rd out of almost 140 countries on the annual Global Firepower index. This is much higher than most CIS states," the Belarusian leader said.
