UNITED NATIONS, September 30. /ITAR-TASS/. Belarus is against thrusting alien political and economic models and cultural tastes on countries, Belarusian Foreign Minister Vladimir Makey said on Tuesday at the United Nations General Assembly.
He said that “the powerful” still thought that “their vision and model of development are universal.” “They never ask anyone whether they like, say, the so-called liberal democracy,” he said. “Others are imply out before a choice: either you accept the “recipes” or be ready for consequences - threats, sanctions, colour revolutions.”
“Frankly speaking, we - the majority - have got accustomed to be thrust into somebody else’s political models. Somebody wants our peoples to feed transnational corporate capital instead of themselves. If we don’t do it well enough, we are punished. The far-fetched pretext is always there - “violations of human rights” in the intractable states,” the Belarusian foreign minister said, adding that Belarus, Venezuela, Iran and Cuba had been feeling this pressure for years.
He also pointed to new dangerous tendencies. “Thus, we are being thrust into disavowing traditional family values and accepting a variety of forms of this institution instead. In other words, they are seeking to deprive us of our own “soul.” It is another way to bend the dissenting to capital by making them soulless slaves.”
He called on countries seeking to foist their models on others to give up this “senseless and futile policy.” “Your actions are only disuniting the world. We have too many common global problems which need unity,” he stressed.
