Aleksandr Lukashenko hears out report of Sergei Gurulev

    President of Belarus Aleksandr Lukashenko has met with Chairman of the State Military and Industrial Committee Sergei Gurulev.

    "First of all, I would like to hear how the instructions I gave to the defense industry when you were appointed are being fulfilled. There are several issues left from the past that we have to deal with”.

    Aleksandr Lukashenko said: “It is important to avoid errors. We should not try to resolve every problem. But we don’t have to reinvent the wheel that we do not need. Our army needs modern weapons. If we create something in addition to those, we will have the right to sell them without violating international treaties”.

    Aleksandr Lukashenko was interested in the state of affairs in defense industry enterprises and their foreign trade surplus.

    Sergei Gurulev informed Aleksandr Lukashenko that the Belarusian defense industry developed quite smoothly. “Since the establishment of the independent republic we have never violated the international law. All the attempts to drag in violations have failed,” he remarked.
