The Head of State noted that the unification of Germany in 1990 became possible thanks to the atmosphere of trust and constructive co-operation between the countries of the continent. "The transition from confrontation to dialogue then required all sides to make brave, strategic decisions. Unfortunately, the European Union is now pursuing not an independent policy of confrontation against a number of sovereign states. The only instrument of Brussels is unilateral measures of economic and political pressure, which directly contradict international law," the President drew attention.
Aleksandr Lukashenko stressed that official Berlin's support of such a course is harmful, and it absolutely does not meet the hopes of the two peoples, causes deep disappointment and justified rejection in Belarus, especially given the terrible events and numerous victims on Belarusian land during WWII.
"100 years after the establishment of diplomatic relations, Belarus, as before, is ready to develop co-operation with Germany on the basis of the principles of equality and mutual respect. It will also contribute to strengthening regional security and stability," the congratulatory message reads.
On this festive day, the Head of State wished Germans peace and confidence in the future.
