MINSK, October 11 (Itar-Tass) —— There is no political motivation in the Belarus-Russia dialog, President Alexander Lukashenko said at a meeting with Novgorod Governor Sergei Mitin on Tuesday.
“True, we have a good dialog now, and this is not because of the Russian presidential election and the Belarusian parliamentary election due next year. There is no political motive at all,” he said.
“We know what Russia is for Belarus. Probably, the Russians also know the meaning of Belarus. Time must pass for Russia to see genuine friends, genuine parasites and genuine foes,” he said.
Belarus will pass through economic difficulties with minimal losses together with Russia, Lukashenko said.
“I am afraid that the global crisis people talk so much about may come to us. I think we will survive this crisis with minimal losses if they are together with Russia,” he said.
“We have things to offer to Russia; our demand for Russian resources is large. If we really provide equal terms, about which the Russian premier writes in his integration article, the Belarusians will be yours forever,” he said.
“It is important to stay together; we are ready to offer Russia any agricultural products. We are also ready to enlarge our share on the Russian market by 100% or even more,” he said.
