President Lukashenko: Belarus will overcome negative effects of global crisis

President Alexander Lukashenko said Belarus will overcome the negative effects of the global crisis at the official reception on the occasion of Old New Year on January 15.

Alexander Lukashenko:
They say that everything we wish for will be fulfilled. I guarantee you that it will come true. I do not only confirm this but also guarantee it. Frankly, my own heart's desire is for Belarus to overcome the negative effects of the global crisis and significantly improve the lives of our people. I do not believe in miracles, but in our abilities. We can do it. If together we work to the best and see the goal overcoming difficulties everything will be okay. And in no case can we stop. Here, of course, it would be appropriate to recall the parable of the Gospel. Apostle Peter walked in the firm belief on a raging sea as if by land. But hardly had he started to doubt when he began to sink. When Christ saved him, he told him: "You are of little faith! Why did you doubt?" Therefore, no doubt, just work to reach the goal. Not straight ahead, over the heads of others.
We have chosen a course and we will follow it, without doubting and fearing. Then our ship will not be afraid of any storm. Courage and perseverance take any city. May all our good hopes embody. May understanding, prosperity and love reign in our homes. And may our home soil always be peaceful and prosperous.

May all your dreams and expectations come true.
