During a meeting with members of the Military Academy, President Alexander Lukashenko called the sovereignty and independence of Belarus his main achievement, BELTA reported.
“I am both proud and happy to be the first president of this sovereign country. And what we have created together is the biggest achievement,” said the president of Belarus.
Commenting on the rumors about the threats to the sovereignty of Belarus coming from Russia, the president said that he could not “bury” an independent state, into the establishment of which he himself has put so much effort. “Would you bury it with your own hands by incorporating it into another country, be it Poland or Russia?” Lukashenko said, noting that he would never do it.
“I have clear boundaries I will never go beyond,” the Belarusian leader said.
Earlier, Anders Fogh Rasmussen, former NATO Secretary General, expressed the opinion that Russia “wants to incorporate Belarus into Russia to be closer to the borders of Europe”.
