Honesty and decency in relationships are important to us. Our position is that the concerns and interests of any country - whether one-eighth of the land or an island nation - must be heard by all! ” - Lukashenko wrote.

To end Russia's war against Ukraine, which he actively supports, the UN is proposing to organize a "global and defining process."
