MINSK, January 25. /TASS/. Belarus is ready to work with the European Union and United States to preserve stability and security in the region, President Alexander Lukashenko said on Monday.
"Our country has a reputation of an active supporter of stability and security in the world," Lukashenko said at the ceremony of receiving letters of credence from foreign ambassadors. "It is a good thing that both EU and US considered our peaceful policy, scrutinized it and came to a conclusion that they should not only cooperate with Belarus but also use it to maintain peace and order in our region," he added noting that Minsk is ready to work in this sphere.
Lukashenko assured ambassadors that most favorable conditions will be ensured for them to fulfil their diplomatic missions in Belarus. "It is very important that during you stay here, you are able to find new opportunities, new formats of mutually beneficial cooperation and put forward constructive ideas for our joint work," he added.
The Belarusian president expressed hope that dialogue with the countries represented by ambassadors will develop "on the basis of understanding, partnership and friendship."
