Belarus is in favor of aligning the EAEU, SCO and BRICS in a broad context, Belarusian President Aleksandr Lukashenko said at the online meeting of the SCO Council of Heads of State on 4 July.

The Belarusian head of state gave his take on most important areas of cooperation in the SCO.

“Such challenges and threats as destructive cyberattacks, data theft, and targeted dissemination of fake news in the information space are becoming increasingly relevant in the member states of the organization,” Aleksandr Lukashenko noted.

“We are ready for cooperation in this area; this includes specialist training, joint projects in cyber exercises, mutual exchange of technical solutions,” the President said.

Speaking about another avenue of cooperation with the SCO, Aleksandr Lukashenko noted: “The West is trying to maintain its dominance in a number of areas of economy and finance, to restrain the development of countries it dislikes, it imposes illegal barbaric sanctions against them. In order to effectively counter this, Belarus is actively promoting the idea of global development. We consistently advocate the formation of a large Eurasian partnership with our long-standing partners - China, India, Pakistan, Iran, the CIS states - and the alignment of the EAEU, SCO and BRICS formats in a broad context.”
