MINSK, July 6. /TASS/. Belarusian President Alexander Lukashenko has proposed to the United States to normalize relations on a mutually beneficial basis.
"We have never concealed the fact that our foreign policy will not be complete without normalization of relations with the United States," Lukashenko said on Wednesday at the meeting with US Charge d’Affaires in Belarus Scott Roland. "We do not hide that we would really want to normalize relations with US on a mutually beneficial basis," BelTA news agency quoted the Belarusian president as saying.
Lukashenko noted that relations between Minsk and Washington had recently improved. "To say that everything is good in relations between our countries will probably not look sincere even from the diplomatic point of view," the Belarusian leader noted. "However, you will probably not deny that the situation has improved and that we are moving in the right direction," he added.
"With the good will of the leadership of the United States, we will be able to do a lot in the nearest future," Lukashenko continued.
Minsk has certain obligations to its neighbors as well, and Belarus closely cooperates with Russia, China, India, the Belarusian president said. "They are our strategic allies, partners, and we made certain agreements with them," he explained adding that Minsk has no taboo topics in cooperation with Washington. "We do not have any obligations to other countries that would contradict cooperation with US. Even Russians always tell us that it is absolutely acceptable and necessary to have normal relations with West Europe and US," he concluded.
