Lukashenko about his excellent relations with Putin
Belarusian President Alexander Lukashenko says Russian President Vladimir Putin and he will be able to solve problems facing bilateral relations without anyone's help, his press service said.
"It's been said already about Russia that mediators are needed there between Putin and Lukashenko. Calm down - Vladimir Vladimirovich Putin and I have excellent, brilliant relations. And we will find time and meet," Lukashenko said today.
"If there are any problems, we will solve them. We will solve them on our own, just the two of us, without any mediators. We do not need any mediation," Interfax cited him as saying.
"We are brothers. We have nothing to quarrel over. I once told him in public that maybe there would come a time when we would have to stand back to back and return fire, as military people say," Lukashenko said.
