MINSK, 16 December (BelTA) – It is the West that is to blame for creating a belt of instability in the Middle East and the north of Africa, President of Belarus Alexander Lukashenko told the radio station Russian News Service in an interview.
“Well, Libya has been destroyed by bombs. What comes next? There were 10 or 15 thousand portable air defense missile systems stored. How many are left in warehouses? Everything has been pillaged. What will we see tomorrow? It is clear to the terrorists that operate from Russia, Caucasia and onward along the entire arc. I know what a portable air defense missile system is. Who got the weapons?”
According to Alexander Lukashenko, the West has thoughtlessly created an entire belt of instability that includes Libya, Egypt, and Tunisia.
Alexander Lukashenko believes that replacing leadership in Middle East and African countries is not a good idea if the current leader is a lesser evil than what may come after the current one.
According to Alexander Lukashenko, the West has failed to heed warnings of Russia and Belarus. Speaking about the President of Syria, he said only mad people could be talking about deposing a leader to make things worse.
