President of Belarus Alexander Lukashenko said he does not intend to make a choice between Europe and Russia: Minsk wants to be friends with European countries, but Russia – “this is sacred.”
The Belarusian leader noted that his country is a quiet and calm sponsor of security on the continent, and in demand in Europe.
Therefore, according to him, Belarus will always meet the interests of European countries if they do not put before it a tough choice – Russia or Europe.
Lukashenko stressed “we will be friends and work with Europe, but Russia is sacred for us.”
Earlier, he stated that Minsk would not be “a boy running errands” for either the East or the West.
