Information about the withdrawal of Belarus from the EEU and the Union State is a complete fiction, said President of Belarus Alexander Lukashenko at a meeting with public representatives of Belarusian and foreign mass media.
The President noted that this information appears because there are people who benefit from it; they rejoice dissemination of such information.
Alexander Lukashenko, President of Belarus:
With regard to the session of the Union Council of Ministers, the Supreme State Council, my trip to the summit of the EEU... I had a clear understanding in this regard: what to talk about if the issues that we agreed on are not being resolved? They have to be decided, because we convert all these meetings of the Union State into something shameful. Questions are not being resolved, we just sit. What are we talking about? It is necessary to solve them. We are preparing very wide information (a group of scientists and specialists is working on it) on Belarusian-Russian relations. I remember how the Customs Union started... Why did we go there? We expected that this alliance would be based on equal rights, equal opportunities will be created. It is important, otherwise this will not be a union. If we have unequal conditions there, why go there, what for?
