Lukashenko: International community faces ‘demons of intolerance’ again

MINSK, 29 June (BelTA) – The international community is facing ‘demons of intolerance’ again, Belarus President Alexander Lukashenko said at a ceremony to pay tribute to the Nazi victims at the site of the former death camp Trostenets on 29 June, BelTA has learned.

“Postwar order reinstated security and peace on the continent for many decades. It seemed that the humankind learned the common lessons of the Second World War. However, today we see that the past still has a firm grip on us. Many do not recognize state borders. The international community has come to face ‘demons of intolerance’ that foment hatred and provoke violence,” the head of state said.

Alexander Lukashenko called for launching a new large-scale international dialogue to overcome all the disagreements. “The lack of this dialogue is clearly felt in the current geopolitical relations,” he noted.

“It is only through trust, respect and an open honest conversation that we can strengthen international security, jointly confront hostility, hatred and bigotry and ensure a happy future for children,” the Belarusian leader said.
