Lukashenko Said That Oil Conflict with Russia Is Connected with Former Government of the RF
According to the Belarusian News Agency, the Belarusian leader explained that in fact the conflict with the Russian Federation is connected "with the old Russian government, which Russian President Vladimir Putin dismissed". According to him, Belarus is negotiating oil supplies with the United States, Saudi Arabia and the United Arab Emirates, which can provide the amount of fuel needed for Minsk.
"We can’t depend on one country, one enterprise. This is monopoly, and this is our problem," the agency quoted Lukashenko as saying. According to him, Belarus is negotiating with all participants in the world market, including “Americans, Saudi Arabia, Emirates”. "Brilliant relationship with them. They say how much we need, we will supply as much oil. Of course, this is a world price. But the quality of oil there is better", Lukashenko said.
