MINSK, 4 June (BelTA) – I intend to do everything necessary to preserve the sovereignty and independence of the Belarusian state, Belarus President Aleksandr Lukashenko said as he announced new appointments on 4 June, BelTA has learned.

“We have created Belarus’ first independent sovereign state. We will not give the country away to anyone to be mocked or destabilized every day, to be torn to pieces and given away to someone,” the Belarusian leader stressed.

“You and everyone please remember: we will not give away the country. We have been creating this flourishing country for more than two decades, piece by piece, not for it to be privatized and its people to go begging. We will not allow Belarus to be divided, as it happened in 1939. The country’s western border was near Minsk back then,” Aleksandr Lukashenko said.
