The Kremlin ruled out ultra-close rapprochement between Belarus and the USA

Russian President’s spokesman Dmitry Peskov commented on the meeting between Belarusian leader Alexander Lukashenko and US Secretary of State Mike Pompeo in Minsk.

According to him, the Kremlin considers the sovereign right of Belarus and the United States to build their relations, and the possibility of "super-close" rapprochement between the two countries is unlikely.

In fact, one can hardly speak of ultra-close rapprochement there. But in this case, we cannot comment and do not want to comment on the contacts of our partners with third countries. This is an absolutely sovereign right and the realization of their sovereign relations

- said Peskov, answering a question from journalists about whether Moscow and Minsk are afraid of rapprochement.

The spokesperson reminded the press that Russia and Belarus have close relations, despite periodically arising problematic issues:

We have our own relations with Belarus, they are allied in character, very close. We have a lot of questions on the agenda for the development of our relations, including some problematic issues that are being discussed.

Previously we wrote that the head of the US Department of State, Mike Pompeo, after meeting with Alexander Lukashenko, said that the United States was ready to fully satisfy the oil demand of Belarus.

    Yeah ... What kind of rapprochement can we talk about until Belarus has a sea? What kind of friendship without an aircraft carrier with military americonegritos?

    And the Kremlin and Ukraine assumed! And they paid and signed, as it was said in the ultimatum. And SP-2 also said a lot of things, "but things are still there." When the brains are busy selling the Motherland and the family, there is no time to think, there are only assumptions!

    More and more I am convinced that we are in power more and more go ... While Yeltsin was chewing his drunken snot, his accomplices surrendered the whole country, the USSR, to Washington's demand, and, somehow imperceptibly, we are talking about .. ... and Ukraine, now it's the Belarusians' turn, and this press attaché is driving some kind of blizzard, which again never happens, and so on. In the situation when everything and everything was laid on us, and we are over the edge of the abyss, and we are still trying to do something honestly, but all the countries of the so-called are playing against us with marked cards. West, we have only one way out - to recognize Father as incapable, to appoint our regent there, and at any breeze of the Washington breeze, send our troops into our still brotherly Belarus, and it's time to give a worthy and tough rebuff to all "partners" who are grinning at us, and not stand in a constant doggy-style pose, a puppy squealing .... It's time to understand that with our politics we allowed this Washington pack to drive ourselves into a deadly corner for us, and if we do not urgently do something extraordinary, we just- will simply gobble up.
