MINSK, April 2. /TASS/. Should a war break out in Belarus, the country will be ready, President Alexander Lukashenko said.

“Don’t believe those who say that we want war. We are preparing for war, make no bones about it. It wasn’t me who was the first to say: ‘If you want peace, prepare for war.’ It’s an apt saying to this day,” Lukashenko pointed out during a trip to the Gomel Region, as cited by the BelTA news agency.
