Security Council: Ukrainian events pose no direct threat to Belarus


Belarus will need to draw conclusions from the events in Ukraine, Alyaksandr Lukashenka claimed. However, the Belarusian administration was not scared by the events, he added.

The Security Council discussed the political situation in Ukraine and its influence on Belarus’ national security. It was noted that the Ukrainian events posed no direct threat to the Republic for Belarus, BELTA reports. At the same time our country is interested in the establishment of civil peace and stability on the Ukrainian territory, members of the Security Council noted.

It was also announced that Belarus would not try to play the leading part in settling the Ukrainian conflict but would make major efforts to save and develop its relations with the neighbouring state.
