MINSK, December 11 (Itar-Tass) — Belarussian President Alexander Lukashenko said recognizing the independence of South Ossetia and Abkhazia was a closed chapter for Minsk at present. "We've turned over this page and have not discussed this theme with the Russian leadership since," Lukashenko told reporters on Tuesday.

According to the Belarussian leader, at one time, when the issue was acute on the agenda, he asked if the Russian leadership was ready to "minimize the negative consequences for Belarus if it recognized the independence of South Ossetia and Abkhazia."

"They told me they were not ready," Lakashenko said.

He underlined that the main thing is that "the recognition or non-recognition by Belarus" would have availed nothing.

In his opinion, it is advantageous to Russia today if Georgia reaches accord with these republics on its own.
