The representative of Belarus at the conference on the Treaty on the Non-Proliferation of Nuclear Weapons (NPT) said that the republic will not change its nuclear-free status.
The diplomat noted that any insinuations on this issue, as well as accusations of non-compliance with the obligations of the republic under the NPT, have no grounds, reports RIA Novosti on Wednesday, the third of August.
The representative of Belarus also noted that the decision to abandon the possession of nuclear weapons was made by Minsk consciously and does not plan to change its position, despite the aggravated geopolitical situation in the region.
Earlier, the President of Belarus stated that neither the republic nor Russia is blackmailing anyone with nuclear weapons. In March, he also stressed that Minsk had no plans “deploy nuclear weapons here, produce nuclear weapons here, create and use these nuclear weapons against anyone.”
