"We reduce our embassies in those countries where it is unprofitable for us to have embassies because of poor trade and low exports. That is why we plan to reduce our embassies in a number of countries. But, as was said, it is not applicable to European countries, Ukraine and so on," he said.
According to him, Minsk understands that having closed this or that diplomatic foreign mission once, it will be more difficult to reopen it. Therefore, Belarus is ready to have normal relations with all partners, including those of "the collective West."
"But if someone doesn’t want it, we will have to look for more reliable allies in other regions," he stressed.
According to Makey, Russia remains the main ally and partner of Belarus.
As we reported earlier, the investigation in Belarus brought charges against four detainees for preparing a coup d'etat in the country with the aim of changing power in an unconstitutional way. This was stated by the head of the investigation department of the State Security Committee Konstantin Bychek.
"Four detained persons were charged with committing a crime under Part 1 of Article 357 of the Criminal Code - a conspiracy to seize power by unconstitutional means. All of them confess and cooperate with the investigation," the KGB spokesman said.
