MINSK, November 6. /TASS/. Belarusian President Alexander Lukashenko said on Friday that he was opposed to hasty structural reforms imposed from outside and urged to learn from other’s mistakes.
"If someone favors reforms, be honest and say that it is necessary to break the political system, state structure of Belarus, it is necessary to divide and distribute public property," he said during the inaugural ceremony. "We are being pushed towards these reforms, and someone today is willing to pay a lot for these reforms," he added.
Lukashenko noted that now it was necessary to ask a question whether the country needed such reforms that were carried out in the neighboring countries - Russia and Ukraine - and urged to learn from the mistakes of others. "Fraternal Russia and Ukraine have already carried out these reforms. They tried and tasted these reforms, and so what?" the president said. "What’s wrong with the system that we have created?"
He also spoke out against plans to introduce private ownership of land and distribute it to farmers. Lukashenko noted that Belarusians would not depart from the path of building "a social state" and would not "split up what has been built up over centuries."
