Lukashenko calls for more effort to defend Belarus' economic interests
In order to protect the domestic enterprises Belarus needs to use more actively the mechanisms of international organizations, Belarus President Aleksandr Lukashenko said at a meeting to discuss Belarus' current foreign policy priorities, BelTA has learned.

“We have to use the mechanisms of international organizations more actively in order to protect our enterprises. Everyone who intends to cancel the results of tenders and contracts for the purchase of domestic products abroad must clearly understand that they cannot get away with it. We need to actively create precedents and develop the practice of protecting economic interests,” said Aleksandr Lukashenko.

The head of state noted that Belarus has enough international lawyers, and enterprises together with the embassies should “fight for every tractor, truck or harvester, for every tonne of fertilizers”.
