Unfortunately, the president said, these negative trends, which have been repeatedly talked about over the past year, are becoming a reality of foreign policy. He paid particular attention to strengthening the military presence and the offensive potential of the alliance near the western borders of the CSTO. It is here, according to him, that large-scale exercises are held, the military infrastructure is being modernized at an accelerated pace, including in neighboring countries.
Moreover, “individual states have become a testing ground for destroying old ones and testing new Western weapons,” Lukashenko noted.
He pointed out that after Finland’s recent entry into the alliance and Sweden’s upcoming entry, the world has again witnessed the expansion of the North Atlantic bloc. “This type of action places the world on the brink of a very dangerous global conflict,” summed up the head of state.
In this regard, Lukashenko is convinced that it is necessary to form a new system of international relations “based on the universally recognized norms and principles of international law, and not on certain ‘rules’ which are falsified by the West”.
Most countries, including CSTO member states, according to the President, see the world’s best prospects for development in multipolarity. And Minsk, he assured, intends to continue to promote the principles of a just and multipolar world, to contribute to the development of reliable guarantees to ensure both collective security and stability, and the safety of each member of the international community.
