President of Belarus Aleksander Lukashenko said that the country is trying to normalize relations with the United States through dialogue. He announced this at a meeting with Ukrainian media in Minsk on September 26.
"We want to normalize relations with the US, but we do not come to heel, we are not eager to hug anyone, kiss anywhere, any part of a body, we are just having a dialogue in a worthy manner. That is what it is based on. Not against Ukraine, not against Russia, not against Europe. Exactly on that”, - Lukashenko said.
At the same time, the Belarusian president stressed that his country was not going to "make friends against Russia."
"We are not going to be friends against Russia. Moreover, when it was difficult for us, let’s be honest, except for Russia and China, we only were at the beginning of cooperation, and, by and large, no one supported us", - Lukashenko stated.
Lukashenko stated that Belarus and Russia will always be together, no matter how much they argue and argued before. Prior to that, the Belarusian leader promised that he would no longer call Russia a brotherly state, but only a partner.
As we reported earlier, President of Belarus Aleksander Lukashenko stated that Donbas conflict could not be settled without the participation of the U.S. He made such a statement during the meeting with Deputy U.S. State Secretary David Hale, as Sputnik reported.
