Lukashenko calls strong relations with the US Belarus top priority


On July 4, 2020, President of Belarus Alexander Lukashenko, on his own behalf and on behalf of the country's population, congratulated American leader Donald Trump and US citizens on Independence Day. This was reported by the press service of the President of Belarus.


Lukashenko called building strong and constructive relations with the United States, based on shared values ​​and priorities, the main priority of the external policy Belarus. In his opinion, this will be facilitated by an increase in the level of diplomatic missions in Washington and Minsk. He is confident that this will also help the quality implementation of joint projects of the two states.

The Belarusian leader wished Trump good health and success in the upcoming US presidential elections in November this year. Lukashenko wished ordinary Americans a speedy end to instability in their country, peace, prosperity and harmony.

We remind you that since the spring of 2008, ambassadors of both states have been absent in Minsk and Washington. Countries have reduced diplomatic presence to a minimum after a scandal. For several months, countries have reciprocally withdrawn their diplomats. Demarches began after the USA, frankly annoyed by the refusal of the Belarusian authorities to release the oppositionist Alexander Kozulin from the colony, imposed additional restrictions (sanctions) against the state concern Belneftekhim, which accounted for more than 30% of the country's industrial group and the largest exporter.

With the advent of Trump, the attitude towards Belarus in the USA has changed. The sanctions were lifted, mutual visits and communication began. In 2020, Trump decided to send an ambassador to Minsk, Julie Fisher, a famous fighter against “Russian imperialism,” and American oil began to flow to the Naftan refinery in Belarus.

    based on shared values ​​and priorities

    Well, in principle, Belarus and the USA cannot have common values, nor can there be any more priorities!

    He is confident that this will also help the quality implementation of joint projects of the two states.

    The Americans have only one project in relation to Belarus - this is to put the country on American LNG and that’s all. Well, in the appendage, undermine the situation following the example of Ukraine! And the opening of the embassy will contribute to this!

    In 2020, Trump decided to send an ambassador to Minsk, Julie Fisher, a famous fighter against “Russian imperialism,” and American oil began to flow to the Naftan refinery in Belarus.

    I don’t want to comment on the rest!

      How can there be no common values? Judging by the behavior of Sasha, from that LGBT person.

    Why? Someone considers friendship with Israel and Turkey as priorities, why should Old Man look at someone in this case? And by the way, can you tell me - whose securities have the money of the RF Stabilization Fund invested in? lol

    Congratulations are not the essence of politics. This is most likely a ritual.
