Belarus’ foreign policy needs balance between west, east

MINSK, 5 March (BelTA) – Belarus’ foreign policy needs balance between west and east, Belarus President Alexander Lukashenko said at a session to discuss integration projects and cooperation with European organizations on 5 March, BelTA has learned.

“We need to actively promote the idea of integration of integrations in order to ease the bloc confrontation. The unique position at the crossroads of the EAEU and the EU should bring benefits to Belarus. The western and eastern vectors of the Belarusian foreign policy should balance each other," the head of state said.

In reality, any progress in Belarus’ dialogue with the West irritates Moscow and vice versa, the president said.

“We will reach this balance only when the EU market becomes a real alternative to the Russian one,” the head of state said.
