President of Belarus Alexander Lukashenko claimed that if the American military bases are deployed in Poland, then Minsk and Moscow will be forced to respond to this as BelTa reported.

“I said to the foreign minister (of Poland, - 112 international), he delivered a speech in Minsk: we are not going to fight with you. So, there is no need to create extra bases. Otherwise, we along with the Russians will be forced to respond. It means that we will be forced to deploy something to counteract you,” Lukashenko noted.

The Belarusian president emphasized that it is better not to quarrel with the neighbors.

“I told them (the representatives of the West, - 112 international): appreciate Belarus; do not impose the sanctions against us. The drugs, banditry, nuclear elements, illegal migration, all these come through us to the West. We catch them, capture at our own expense,” he added.

The United States is considering a request from Poland for a permanent U.S. military presence in the fellow NATO country, acknowledging that he shares Poland’s concerns about possible Russian aggression.
