Independence Day greetings

    Sovereignty is the most valuable asset of Belarus and its people, President Aleksandr Lukashenko said as he extended Independence Day greetings on 3 July.

    “This day that unites the fates of different generations reminds us of the long and difficult path of the development of our state. We know the value of freedom. We understand the power of the unity of people, patriotism and faith in the future. We understand that sovereignty is our most valuable asset,” the head of state said.

    “By liberating the Motherland from the Nazis, restoring the country in the postwar years, developing a young nation at the turn of epochs and millennia, we have been writing the history of independent Belarus together. Our sacred duty is to keep the memory of the Great Feat, pass it on to future generations, keep and strengthen peace on our land, enrich and make our country more beautiful,” the head of state said.

    “May this remarkable day that have become the symbol of courage and heroism of the Belarusian people continue to inspire the citizens of our country for new achievements,” Aleksandr Lukashenko said.
