Lukashenko: Peace in Belarus through people's unity

Lukashenko: Peace in Belarus through people's unity

MINSK, 22 June (BelTA) – The unity of people helps maintain peace in the country, Belarus President Alexander Lukashenko said at the 5th Belarusian People’s Congress on 22 June, BelTA has learned.

The head of state noted that the unity of the nation and mobilization of all its forces are the things needed to weather difficult times and even prevent them, maintain peace in the country and save the country itself.

Many noticed that the Belarusian People’s Congress coincides with the important date in the Belarusian history, 22 June. “It is a truly symbolic, tragic and telling date. The most horrible and bloody war in the history of mankind began 75 years ago. We remember its lessons very well,” Alexander Lukashenko stressed.

“The main lesson is that any, even the biggest, problem can be overcome together. If the nation gets united against difficulties, any obstacles are surmountable, any goals are achievable,” the President said.

The President reminded the delegates of another important lesson of the past. “We cannot be negligent and self-assured. We cannot take a carefree attitude toward the future. We must not allow others catch us flatfooted as it happened in those years. We need to foresee and prevent the danger,” Alexander Lukashenko said.

Today there is peace and order in the Belarus. “We live on our land. We live modestly, but we have everything we need. We have seen, on the example of our neighbors, that peace is the greatest value. It can be lost easily: the road from peace to war can be very short,” the Belarusian leader warned.

Belarus gives high priority to its defensive capacity and security. The national security concept and the new Military Doctrine have been recently adopted. They contain the main goals and areas of activity with the focus on the present-day threats and challenges. “The main thing for our state is a peaceful multi-pronged foreign policy,” Alexander Lukashenko stressed.
