MINSK, December 16. /ITAR-TASS/. Belarus is ready to take any steps towards normalising relations with the European Union and maintain cooperation on an equal base, President Alexander Lukashenko said at a meeting with ambassadors of foreign states.
“No claims can be lodged to normalise relations. I don’t want to say the ball is on your court. This is journalists’ cliche. But the ball is really on your court,” the Belarusian president said.
Fruitful cooperation with the EU countries is possible only on an equal and mutually respectful base. “We have too many external threats posed to the population. Let’s think how to counter these threats and let’s not to skew at each other,” Lukashenko said, adding that European businessmen sought to work in Belarus.
“I’m sure that the pragmatic approach and positive results will allow us to achieve much in the most different fields,” the Belarusian president said.
