MINSK, November 21. /TASS/. Belarus is not facing a choice between East or West, the country has been maintaining mutually beneficial cooperation with many countries, Belarusian President Alexander Lukashenko said at a meeting with a delegation from the Political and Security Committee of the Council of the European Union.
"We don’t have to choose between the East or the West and we will not make such choices," Lukashenko stated.
He pointed out that the country’s foreign policy had been "consistent and predictable." "We have been maintaining mutually beneficial cooperation with many countries. For us, strategic relations with Russia and China, sustainable interaction with the EU and the US, as well as bilateral ties with the countries of the Middle East, Latin America, Central Asia and Africa, are equally important," the Belarusian president explained.
