Lukashenko expresses concern over destruction of moral principles and values

NEW YORK, 29 September (BelTA) - Speaking at the general debate of the 70th session of the UN General Assembly in New York Belarus President Alexander Lukashenko expressed concerns over the destruction of moral principles and value of humankind, BelTA informs.

The Belarusian head of state noted that global threats in the social, humanitarian and environmental nature cause concerns.

“Of late, resounding calls for maximum freedom have put to test the basic foundations of human society, including the family, good morals and virtue,” said the Belarusian leader.

“Let me be frank: we are deeply concerned by the ongoing destruction of the traditional family in a number of countries. We particularly do not like being invited to accept certain moral deviations and various social 'innovations' as natural,” said the head of state.

“Irresponsible social ideas may lead to new divisions between different cultures and give birth to brutal religious rejection and ethnic conflicts. Do these 'social innovators' consider the consequences of their words and actions?” the President of Belarus stressed.

“We will do everything to ensure that our grandchildren and their descendants preserve socially nurtured moral values, good traditions of spirituality and culture,” Alexander Lukashenko stressed.

In his words, the same selfish attitude is characteristic of the mankind's approach to nature. “For many years now, the international community has been trying to meet the challenge of climate change. Many simply prefer to shift the burden onto others,” the Belarusian leader said.

“Thinking about such problems, one cannot help arriving at one particular idea. It seems that there is one deep-lying root of all these crises: an artificial cult of individual rights and freedoms to the detriment of collective social interest,” the Belarusian head of state believes.

“Under the guise of protection of human rights, overthrow of governments, destruction of states and wars over resources are being justified. Chaos and anarchy are proliferated. Predatory attitude to nature and pursuit of easy profit are cultivated. This leads to degradation of human consciousness, when someone's perverted whims are treated as a norm. Such approaches give "green light" to social degradation, decay of moral principles and values. The very boundary between good and evil disappears, stressed the President of Belarus.
