MINSK, October 11. /TASS/. Belarus's President Alexander Lukashenko said he would discuss with Russia's President Vladimir Putin establishment of Russian military bases in Belarus.
"We shall discuss this issue with Vladimir Putin; if Russia can see something we do not see, it will tell us," the Belarusian president told reporters on Sunday.
"If the issue about the Air Force is clear, then give to us those 24 aircraft," he said adding "if you do not want to give them, then rent them to us.".
Russian remains for Belarus the closest and friendly country, Alexander Lukashenko said.
"We are not only remaining a friendly country for Russia, it is the closest friendly country," he said.
He said some western media and some forces in Russia say that Belarus has been turning towards the West, but this is not true. "They would want to slander those relations, but they have not and will not succeed," Lukashenko said.
Belarus will never become a base for an attack on any country, including Ukraine, Lukashenko told reporters.
"Belarus will never be a base for an attack on any country," he said in response to a question if Ukraine may expect a threat from Belarus.
Lukashenko, referring to what Ukraine’s President Pyotr Poroshenko said, confirmed the lasting truce in Donbass.
"Truce is there, then peace will come," he said, adding people should live in peace. "What is there Belarus, Russia and Ukraine may argue about.".
