MINSK, 27 August (BelTA) – We will not allow anyone to talk to us from the position of strength, political analyst, Chairman of the Supervisory Board of the Belarusian Committee of Youth Organizations Vadim Borovik told the Belarus 1 TV channel, BelTA has learned.

“Ostap Bender said: Foreigners will help us. This is the most indecent thing – to go from one to another organization in Western Europe and the USA and call to impose any sanctions on their own people and their own country. This is unacceptable. Any sensible person can see that such actions are not constructive and they are culpable, because they can cause direct economic and political damage to our country,” Vadim Borovik said.

In his words, the Ministry of Foreign Affairs has done a lot to mend ties with Western Europe. “Europe came to realize that it was unacceptable to talk to Belarus from the position of strength. We learned to maintain a dialogue. We were called a donor of European stability. The Normandy Four came here, we hosted international forums; we discussed security of the entire European region,” the political analyst said.

Vadim Borovik underlined: “We suggested conducting political reforms, amending the Constitution, but staying focused on our own economy. However, our opponents demand a revolution, a dramatic change of the political system…, which will deliver a direct blow on economy. They do not think about consequences and ordinary Belarusians. It is unacceptable to treat their own nation like that, to torment them. I hope that the majority of us, Belarusians, are wise people. We are a strong nation, we will be strong enough to overcome all this. I believe that Europe will stick to a balanced position. Our Ministry of Foreign Affairs has created good groundwork for cooperation, we enjoy a good standing in Europe. I am sure that any calls for sanctions, for suspending a dialogue with Minsk will not be supported the way opposition wants. We are ready for a dialogue, but we will not let anyone talk to us from the position of strength,” the expert said.
