President of Belarus Alexander Lukashenko says he finds it necessary for the United States’ to be openly involved in the peace process in Ukraine, the press office of the Belarus leader said on March 31.
In an interview with Bloomberg, Lukashenko expressed his vision of the situation answering a range of questions related the peace process in Ukraine after the Minsk Agreement in the Normandy Format.
“The most worrying thing is that the U.S. hasn’t been openly involved in this process,” Lukashenko said. “I believe that without the Americans, there can be no stability in Ukraine,” the president is quoted as saying.
According to Lukashenko, when meeting recently with representatives of the United States of America, the official representatives who visited Belarus, he “strongly conveyed his view” to them by saying: “I do not know what the Americans want here, in Eastern Europe, particularly in Ukraine, but if they want peace and stability they should immediately engage in that process."
