MINSK, May 8 (Itar-Tass) —— Central European nations should become a link between the West and the East, a common economic space from Lisbon to Vladivostok, Belarusian President Alexander Lukashenko said in the state of the nation address on Tuesday.
“Two large unions (the EU and the Common Economic Space] should not be hostile towards each other. They should not divide this continent. They should unite it instead. So, Belarus proposes integration of integration unions. Its goal is to create a common economic space, from Lisbon to Vladivostok,” the president said in the address.
“That is what the Russian president speaks about. That is why the Common Economic Space summit held in Moscow last December decided by the Belarusian initiative that it would be expedient to consider the interaction between the Common Economic Space and the EU. The partners supported our proposal,” the president said.
“I think that Central European countries have a mission. Latvia, Lithuania, Belarus, Ukraine, Slovakia, the Czech Republic should unite the West and the East. This is their new historical mission and the special role,” Lukashenko concluded.
