Aleksandr Lukashenko sends Constitution Day greetings to Norway

    Belarusian President Aleksandr Lukashenko has sent greetings to the people of Norway as the country celebrates Constitution Day.

    “During its independence your state has achieved considerable results ensuring high living standards and social guarantees for the population, implementation of innovative and environmentally friendly approaches in economy,” the message of greetings reads.

    Aleksandr Lukashenko noted that in recent decades Norway has consistently expanded cooperation with Belarus, has been a good friend and reliable partner of the country in Scandinavia, while the companies of the two states, which work in the food industry, have made a worthy contribution to global food security.

    “Unfortunately, today the official Oslo, by joining politically motivated illegitimate sanctions against our country, violates the rights of ordinary Belarusians. Belarus has always been reverent about agriculture. Now the problems associated with Belarusian fertilizers take on a new dimension. Restrictions on them threaten the starvation of millions of people all over the world,” the President said.

    The head of state has stressed that despite the complicated political climate in the region, Belarus strives to maintain friendly relations, cultural and business contacts between Belarusians and Norwegians and is always open to an equal and mutually respectful dialogue.
