Belarus: the country will not withdraw from the "INF" Treaty
The world draws a sigh of relief for once
The Belarusian President Alexander Lukashenko declared today that his country has not withdrawn from the Intermediate Range Nuclear Forces Treaty (INF) and will not produce atomic missiles or deploy them on its territory if there is no threat to security. And he added: "Belarus is located in the heart of Europe, where the memories of the most terrible wars in human history are still alive in the genes of our people".
The leader is certain that this decision constitutes an important step forward to start a peace dialogue in the world since the increase in arms is directly proportional to the increase in tensions on the continent.
A position that brings a breath of relief to the world considering that on August 2 the United States left the treaty (see AVIONEWS). Currently there are 69 Nations at war and more than 820 conflicts in progress (see AVIONEWS).
