MINSK, October 26 (Itar-Tass) — Belarusian President Alexander Lukashenko said on Wednesday that there had never been misunderstanding between the Belarusian and Russian leadership on security issues.
“We have faced different situations, including misunderstanding with the Russian leadership, but we are brothers and friends,” Lukashenko said at a meeting with participants in a session of the CSTO Parliamentary Assembly Council.
The Belarusian leader stressed that everything connected with the CSTO “is sacred”. “He have never had any misunderstanding on that, either in the Belarus-Russia Union or in the Collective Security Treaty Organisation,” he added.
Lukashenko said the Collective Rapid Reaction Force has been set up within the framework of the CSTO, and some decisions have been made of late to supply it with state of the art equipment.
The developments in Kyrgyzstan, for example, demonstrated that “we not always normally react to the situation facing our brothers and friends,” Lukashenko noted. According to him, this has prompted the CSTO to have a system to react to these situations.
