Belarusian President Alexander Lukashenko warned Thursday that the policy driven from the West could lead the world to a third world war, so he stressed that the response “must be unequivocal” given that “the conflicts that have shaken the Old World have already reached Asia.”
During his speech on the occasion of the Conference on Interaction and Confidence Building Measures in Asia, Lukashenko has stressed that the “practice of organizing coups in third countries and dictatorships of the sanctioning countries do not fit with the norms of international law.”
“The risk of starting a third world war in which there would be no winners is unacceptable. We have to think things through given that the situation has deteriorated catastrophically not only in Europe but globally,” he said.
In this regard, he has urged the countries of the region to “join forces.” “Belarus cannot ignore the current issues. I am convinced that the time has come for us to unite to confront the problems that we face and that we cannot overcome independently,” he asserted, according to information from the BelTA news agency.
“We will be strong only if we manage to benefit from working together and solve the most complex issues when it comes to ensuring the supply of energy, food and fertilizers,” he said before indicating that “we need the most favorable formats for trade and investments.”
