MINSK, January 22. /TASS/. Belarusian President Alexander Lukashenko expressed readiness to defend the country’s national interests, including with the use of all military resources of the state.

Holding a meeting of the Security Council on the military doctrine of Belarus, Lukashenko said, "We have every reason to publicly reaffirm our peaceful policy and absence of hostility towards other countries. However, we express determination to defend our national interests, including with the use of all military resources of the state, if necessary."

He noted that "we don’t want anything that doesn’t belong to us, but we won’t concede an inch of what is ours. This is not something invented by us."

"Active use of ‘color revolution’ mechanisms to topple the legitimate governments has led to an increase in the number of armed conflicts. Political goals are achieved increasingly often by undermining the state from within," the Belarusian leader said.

Iraq, Libya and Yemen have been plunged into chaos, and bloodshed in Syria continues, Lukashenko went on to say. "To date, attempts to normalize the situation in Ukraine have failed. Some trouble spots are currently ‘frozen’ and may flare up at any moment," he noted.

"Contradictions between Russia and NATO member-countries have intensified, to say the least. And we found ourselves between them, as between the hammer and the anvil," Lukashenko said.

According to him, further escalation of the situation could have irreparable consequences for both Europe and the whole of humanity.

Lukashenko added that the analysis of the current situation made one adjust the approaches to comprehensive national security, including in the military sphere.
