The President said that the question of how does the leadership of the country to join the EU, he asked one of the representatives of the EU. “Never, neither I nor my government did not think such a goal is not set, — said Lukashenko. But again ask such a question, so they have formed somewhere. Indeed, if we joined today in the EU, they would have no problems not had.”
In this connection, Alexander Lukashenko said that reading a variety of information, including the closed nature: “to Me our intelligence reported one material, where they are (in the European Union, in the West. — Ed.) evaluate Belarus. And what surprised me (this is where two years ago it was), say, is the most advanced country in Eastern Europe and around the EU, is ready without any changes in the law, something else to join the EU is Belarus. It was a closed their report, I read”.
The President believes that the preservation in Belarus the death penalty would not be some barrier and is not for communication now. “Say: people vote — cancel. We have the referendum passed. You think I like this the death penalty that I sign and after I shot the man, roughly speaking? Yes hundred years it is I need! But the people voted and that under the Constitution the powers of the President in any country where there is a death penalty,” — said the Belarusian leader.
He added that when it comes to the death penalty, he cites a few specific examples of the horrific cruelty of the killings, including children.
“We are a sovereign and independent, and have to see their interest”
The President noted that Belarus was fortunate to gain its independence peacefully. “We quietly, quietly created their own state. A unique case. But we were also experienced. But well, that is not war. Too bad that these sanctions. It was deployed against us an economic war,” — said Lukashenko.
He explained that the reason for the appearance on the political map of the world 15 new States after the collapse of the Soviet Union. “But it’s a small world. All the seats were full and we had to find its place. That is, someone to push back. So, we had someone stepped on the foot, someone hooked. Of course, it is objectively caused some opposition on their part,” — said Lukashenko.
Speaking about why the recently changed policy of the West towards Belarus, the President expressed the view that it is not because Belarus has taken a certain position in relation to the events in Ukraine or anything in that regard. “The time has changed, and there is a reason they move away from these sanctions, to save face. They have long understood that incorrectly imposed sanctions on us. They just wanted to strangle us for our position such allied character, the preservation of the Union of the relations between the republics of the former USSR”, — said Alexander Lukashenko.
He also noted that he wants in the future to see the country free and independent. “Never again to us from under the lashes were not administered in our history. We are ruled processes in the country and determined its future. It is important that you want to keep. Everything else you can buy,” — said the Belarusian leader.
“I want it (the country. — Ed.) was Belarus. She was in the centre of Europe, stable, untouched by boundaries that we ourselves happiness was produced and tested. That is, I want to see the free and independent Belarus to our children, to go somewhere, go back to your piece of land,” Lukashenka said.
He stressed that Belarus does not pretend to be someone else, and only strives to keep its. “And look at us some, remembering the Polish-Lithuanian Commonwealth, the Grand Duchy of Lithuania, the Soviet Union and other”, — said Alexander Lukashenko.
“I said, times have changed, we are ready for any alliances, any “Speeches”, but we are a sovereign and independent, and have to see their interest. And all this for the benefit of our children. And for this we need to have defense, to control all processes”, — the President added.
