Lukashenko: The world needs responsible politicians ready to act in the interest of global community

NEW YORK, 27 September (BelTA) – The modern world has been experiencing a crisis of responsibility. That means there is a need for politicians that are ready to take decisions in the interest of the entire international community, Belarus President Alexander Lukashenko said as he spoke at the plenary meeting of the 2015 UN Sustainable Development Summit on 27 September, BelTA has learned.

“Today we need responsible politicians who are able to act globally, strategically, who are ready to take decisions in the interest of the entire international community, who are ready to meet halfway for the public good,” the Belarusian leader said.

According to Alexander Lukashenko, in the modern world many decisions are based on self-interest and short-term advantages. In his words, steps some states take on the international arena do not take into account the reality and individuality of other countries and societies.

Lukashenko: The world needs responsible politicians ready to act in the interest of global community“I am convinced be it otherwise there would have been no hundreds of human victims in Iraq, Libya, Syria and other countries, which generated mass flows of refugees running from war. There would have been no Islamic State. There would have been no eruptions of terrorism in Europe and civil war in Ukraine. This “would have been no” list is long. It is vital to talk about it because the people from these countries will not understand us talking about development while millions, billions of people wish to survive until the morning at least,” said the President of Belarus.

“Only mutual understanding and responsibility, the recognition of our diversity, the renewal of trust will help us unite and safeguard peace and security, find effective responses to global challenges and threats,” Alexander Lukashenko said.

According to him, such efforts will result in sustainable development of all the states and help enhance the role of the United Nations Organization in the global policy.
