Belarus (bbabo.net), - Belarussia, within the framework of the implementation of allied programs for integration in security matters, have gone far. This was announced today, on January 12, at a regular meeting by Alexander Lukashenko.
According to him, during the negotiations on the approval of the allied programs, "very sparkling."
“I want to say that it’s not just that Putin and I (President of the Russian Federation Vladimir Putin. - bbabo.net) got together and banged something. No. Officials in charge met, discussed, at the Supreme State Council with the participation of senior officials present, we approved these programs. But it sparkled very much when we accepted these programs. There were dozens of them. We went along with the Russians, agreeing on 28 intersectoral programs. Then there were proposals to create a parliament, and create something else there, and so on and so forth. All this was not accepted, rejected. And then President Putin, reacting to my remarks, said to his negotiators already in the closed part: “Why are we rushing about? What are we stressing about here? If we are not ready to resolve these issues today, there will be two sides, and there is no need to do so yet. If there is a need, we will decide.” So it was said. And we always insisted that the cart should not be put before the horse. So we agreed. It was fundamental. And these 28 programs remained,” he said.
At the same time, Lukashenka stressed that these programs reflect not only areas of a socio-economic nature, but also security issues, although there are nuances.
“Time has now pushed us in such a way that those security programs that were approved more than a year ago are already outdated. We have already come a long way in bilateral relations on security issues. That is, life pushed us - and we went for closer integration. This is how you have to act: go from life. Otherwise, we will break everything,” the Belarusian leader said, promising that when the time comes, he will tell journalists more detailed information.
Recall that in 2021 the presidents of Belarussia approved an integration package of documents. Among them were 28 union programs to deepen integration processes. By the beginning of this year, the parties have implemented about 70% of the planned.
