MINSK, February 16. /TASS/. Belarus and Russia will soon adopt a new military doctrine of their Union State, member of the Standing Committee of the House of Representatives of the National Assembly (lower house of Belarusian parliament) Zygmund Valevach told reporters on Tuesday.
"The Union State’s new Military Doctrine will be worked out on the basis of the 2015 Russian Military Doctrine and 2016 Belarusian doctrine and considered", the lawmaker said. According to him, its adoption is planned in view of the NATO expansion and increased number of NATO member countries.
"We must not forget that the NATO alliance is growing and now comprises almost 30 countries. Montenegro has applied for membership in the alliance, and three more countries are about to join it. It is not ruled out that Georgia and Ukraine will also join NATO", Valevach said.
According to him, the adoption of the Union State’s doctrine is important because there is a joint regional group of forces of Belarus and Russia. "We cannot but talk about our unified air defense system, we cannot move away from the notion of the Collective Security Treaty," the parliamentarian said.
According to him, the previous Union State doctrine was adopted in 2001. "We are not threatening anyone. Belarus’ new Military Doctrine, like the previous one, is defensive in nature, but we must be ready to perform our tasks. We must ensure security of the state, if necessary," Valevach said.
