Lukashenko: Strong China means independent Belarus


Speaking to students at Beijing University in China, Belarusian President Alexander Lukashenko said that China is one of the pillars of multi-polarity and stability in the world.

“Only a multi-polar world can keep and save our planet from destruction. No system can stand on only one footing for a long time. The more of them – the stronger the system is. And one of the pillars of the multi-polarity and stability is China. We are very interested in strengthening this pillar. This is our pragmatism. If China is powerful and strong, Belarus will remain sovereign and independent, because it is our friend, whose shoulder we can always rely on,” Lukashenko said.

The head of Belarus also added that he supports the undisputed rule of law in international relations, which should be based on a multi-polar world order.

Last year, Lukashenko said that Belarus and China will not build a friendship against other countries.
