Lukashenko: Belarus always ready to lend shoulder to Zimbabwe

Belarus is always ready to lend a shoulder to Zimbabwe in any situation – as stated by the President of Belarus, Aleksandr Lukashenko, after his talks with President of Zimbabwe Emmerson Mnangagwa, BelTA reports

“You should know that there is such a country in the centre of Europe as Belarus, which is always ready to lend a shoulder to you in any situation,” Aleksandr Lukashenko stressed. “We will put the results of this visit on the scales of peace and progress.”

The Belarusian Head of State addressed the people of the country, noting that today the largest states of the planet – the powers that be – are trying to divide and redistribute this world. They are trying to subjugate countries like Belarus and Zimbabwe, in order to receive benefits from this.

Aleksandr Lukashenko emphasised that Zimbabwe is rich in minerals, and therefore no one will give this country a peaceful life. This is also the reason for the sanctions. “The Americans imposed sanctions against you not because you are not democratic, but because you decided to take control of your country and minerals. You do not let all kinds of international crooks and swindlers in here to use your wealth. This is the reason for the sanctions. They want to put you on your knees again, as it was in past centuries. But the President and the authorities of Zimbabwe do not want this. That’s where the sanctions come from,” he said.


“You will be rocked vigorously in order to sow confusion in your society, you will be forced to kneel. But you must endure. And you will endure if you are united, if you do not allow your own people to clash inside the country because of some political ambitions or illusory promises of the West and America,” the Belarusian leader stressed. “We must go through this difficult period in the life of our planet at all costs. Take care of peace! If you fail to do this, you will fall under colonial oppression again.”

“Be cautious, be careful. Don’t believe loudmouths. Only thanks to your work you can achieve your own well-being,” the Belarusian Head of State said, speaking about the upcoming electoral campaign in Zimbabwe this summer.

Aleksandr Lukashenko’s speech was repeatedly accompanied by applause.
