Alexander Lukashenko stated this at a meeting with Russian President Vladimir Putin in Sochi, BelTA informs.
“Most importantly, we know what to do and in what direction to move. And it turns out. We thought it would be worse. But so far a little better than we thought. And so slowly we will rebuild our relationship. I have already publicly said at a meeting of our secretaries of security councils: Russia and I will think over a plan of action in this situation. Hoping that the sanctions will be lifted, something else - we don't even need to talk about it.
We need to focus on our strengths and on ourselves. And if we develop such a plan of our actions, our partners will definitely join. I'm sure Kazakhstan within the EAEU and Uzbekistan. And we will create attractive conditions here. I am sure that our union will only grow stronger,” Alexander Lukashenko said.
During the meeting, Putin said that the preparation of facilities for storing tactical nuclear weapons in Belarus ends on July 7-8.
