President Aliaksandr Lukashenka on 4 November spoke about Belarus' foreign policy when he visited the Balbasava township in the Orsha district. In his opinion, our foreign policy is based on life:

"It is only natural. We need to have good relations with the neighbours and not to fight with them," Belarus president is quoted as saying by his press office.


Lukashenka also commented on NATO's plans to deploy a military base in Poland:

"I told the Polish foreign minister when he spoke in Minsk: we are not going to fight with you. Therefore, there is no need for unnecessary bases. Otherwise, we and Russians will have to respond. It means we will deploy something on our territory in order to counteract you."
