Lukashenko: Belarus is a peace-loving and friendly country, without any fantastic ambitions

MINSK, 6 November (BelTA) - Belarus is a peace-loving and friendly country harboring no fantastic ambitions, Alexander Lukashenko said when speaking in the inauguration ceremony, BelTA has learned.

"Our intentions are simple and straightforward: to build a peaceful and happy life in our own home, in collaboration and cooperation with all our neighbors," the head of state said. “We never created problems to our neighbors. We have always been friends with them, with an open mind, with a piece of bread, not a stone, in our hand. And this will remain so!” he said.

He noted that Belarus is one of the most stable countries in the world. By developing the transportation and logistics infrastructure, the country has become an indispensable transit corridor. A huge flow of goods goes through the country, and this flow will continue increasing.

"Peace and order on our land are above all. If there is disorder, a conflict or war, then there is no need for bread, clothes, paychecks, companies or reforms. Therefore, peace and order are the main things!” the head of state said. He added that Leonid Kuchma who was present at the inauguration ceremony "can tell more about this."

"I stress again we will spare no efforts to preserve peace and stability on our land,” the Belarusian President noted.

“We therefore support the steps to make the Collective Security Treaty Organization more efficient,” said Alexander Lukashenko.
