Unfortunately, we are now once again returning to the times of confrontation, when walls are being built between countries in the heart of Europe."

The Head of State stressed that Belarusians and Germans should make their joint contribution to avoid a destructive confrontation and prevent a new catastrophe.

"Minsk is open for an equitable dialogue and pragmatic co-operation with Berlin, and also for further development of bilateral relations, which have turned 30 this year," the Belarusian leader emphasised.
