Lukashenko: Belarus is an island of security on the Eurasian continent

Lukashenko: Belarus is an island of security on the Eurasian continent

MINSK, 22 January (BelTA) – Belarus is an island of security on the Eurasian continent. Belarus President Alexander Lukashenko made the statement on 22 January as he approved this year’s state border security guidelines, BelTA has learned.

Alexander Lukashenko said: “We spend a lot on protecting the state border. Today Belarus is an island of security on the Eurasian continent. We spend handsome amounts of money on preventing all kinds of migrants, bandits, charlatans, and criminal groups from reaching Europe and going back to the East. We perform an important international function.”

“But frankly speaking, the international community, particularly Europeans, and Russians at that, could make a more vigorous financial contribution to our efforts to fight all kinds of trespassers,” added the head of state.

Alexander Lukashenko reminded that upon his instructions the State Secretariat of the Security Council examined the operation of the Belarusian border service last year. Alexander Lukashenko wondered how the previously given instructions were being fulfilled. “I would like the chairman of the State Border Committee to tell me about the situation at the border and results achieved in 2017. Considering those, what corrections are you going to introduce to the border protection routine?” asked the president.

After hearing out the reports the head of state approved this year’s state border security guidelines.
