Neither Russia nor USA will press red button, Belarus President says

Belarus President Alexander Lukashenko commented on US actions in Syria during his speech in Rechitsa.

How does the Belarus President explain the actions of Donald Trump?

Alexander Lukashenko, President of Belarus:
We do not need to get involved in adventures and in no case can the collision between the two major nuclear powers, Russia and America, be allowed. I think this is just an information war.

They are frightening each other and we are trying to intimidate us with nuclear weapons and so on.

Neither Russia nor America will press the red button, because this means the destruction of Russia and the United States, as too many nuclear weapons have accumulated. And where is the guarantee that Britain, France, China, India, Israel, Pakistan or even North Korea, who have nuclear weapons, will not get involved in this massacre? So I do not think that we will reach the point when someone will press the nuclear button.

But the world has come to a very dangerous point. Never before have we seen that.
