Belarus will never get dragged into someone else’s wars and conflicts, Belarus’ Defense Minister Andrey Raukou said when speaking in a ceremony of taking a military oath by the personnel of the 72nd guard united training center for warrant officers and junior specialists on Saturday.

“Belarus will never get dragged into someone else’s wars and conflicts . It will always be defending itself against any attack. To ensure peace and security the country pursues a multiple-vector peaceful foreign policy, continues the upgrade of the Armed Forces which have always been the most important deterrent against the attempts to talk with our country from the position of force,” Raukou stressed.


Against the ‘backdrop of wars and military conflicts’ happening in the world, Belarus demonstrates its ability to ‘ensure peace and stability in the country’, the Minister added.
