Belarus: Ukraine crisis a scheme to sow enmity between "Slav sister nations"

MINSK. June 27 (Interfax) - Belarus' foreign minister has said he sees the Ukraine crisis was "an efficiently choreographed campaign" to set "Slav sister nations" against each other.

"It seems to us that an efficiently choreographed campaign has been in place that aimed to set Slav sister nations against each other," Vladimir Makei told Cuban news agency Prensa Latina and Cuban television. A transcript of the interview was posted on the Belarusian Foreign Ministry's website on Friday.

"Unless all necessary measures are taken now to organize a dialogue Е get all the parties to the conflict without exception on board and set the task of achieving peace in the country on uniting and not disuniting terms - if this doesn't happen, I'm afraid we may go back to the worst times of the Cold War, to new dividing lines in Europe, and to some large countries threatening and blackmailing other large countries," he said.

"So our position, the position of Belarus, has always been simple - we stand for dialogue, for the earliest possible settlement of the conflict," Makei said.

"One may say that the events in Ukraine have given rise to increasing instability and an increasing danger in this region. NATO is strengthening its group in countries that are neighbors of Belarus," he said.

"In Ukraine itself, huge amounts of weapons have disappeared from arsenals or depots. Economically, these are very hard times for Ukraine," Makei said.

"So, of course, we are inevitably worrying about what is happening in Ukraine now," he said.

"Of course, the events in Ukraine affect the national interests of Belarus. Ukraine is our second most important trading and economic partner in post-Soviet space after Russia. We have had a trade turnover of $8 billion with Ukraine and a foreign trade surplus in recent years," Makei said. "We have a border 1,100 kilometers long with Ukraine. So we are very concerned about what is happening in Ukraine."
