Lukashenko: Timely harvesting is crucial for country’s food security

NESVIZH DISTRICT, 27 July (BelTA) – The timely and high-quality harvesting is of crucial importance for country’s food security, Belarus President Aleksandr Lukashenko said during a working trip to Nesvizh District on 27 July, BelTA has learned.

“We need to focus on the harvest season now. The election campaign is secondary to this,” Aleksandr Lukashenko said.

The head of state said that whoever is at the post of the president or governor, bread is always of crucial importance for the country. “God save us all from what happened in the 1990s. I have already talked about the time when Minsk had flour stocks only for three days. We need to do our best to harvest the crop and restore the reserves,” the head of state said.

Aleksandr Lukashenko set the target for Minsk Oblast. “Two million tonnes [of grain] is your minimum for today,” said the president addressing Minsk Oblast Governor Aleksandr Turchin.

In his words, getting a good harvest is profitable for farmers themselves as the more they harvest, the more they earn. “The best buyers are meat and milk producers,” the head of state said.

Agriculture and Food Minister Ivan Krupko briefed the president on agricultural export prospects.
