Lukashenko: Belarus’ biggest achievements are peace and social tranquility

MINSK, 2 October (BelTA) – Peace on the Belarusian soil and tranquility in the society are the biggest achievements of the country, Belarus President Alexander Lukashenko said as he spoke during the Prayer for Belarus ceremony in the All Saints Memorial Temple in Minsk on 2 October, BelTA has learned.

“Today the globe is shattered by bloody conflicts. Even our neighbors, fraternal Ukrainians, are involved in the internecine warfare. Dozens of thousands of people run from that war, including to Belarus. Stories of refugees are horrifying,” the head of state noted.

Bombs do not explode, mothers do not cry, helpless children and elderly people do not die in the country of blue rivers and lakes,” the President said.

Alexander Lukashenko emphasized that Belarus often became the crossroads where the armies of belligerent countries fought to death in the past. “Our people suffered so much that they have become immune to any violence. Peacefulness is the basis of our foreign policy today,” the President stated.

The head of state believes that the historical memory and good traditions are a reliable foundation of the social wellbeing and stability in any country. “Loyalty to moral principles, generosity and humanity are the secrets of the spiritual power of our people which helped them hold out against all historical ordeals and build a sovereign state,” Alexander Lukashenko noted.Belarus President Alexander Lukashenko during the Prayer for Belarus ceremony in the All Saints Memorial Temple in Minsk
