President of Belarus Aleksander Lukashenko congratulated the people of Finland on Independence Day.
President of the Republic of Belarus
Minsk, December 6, 2022
I sincerely congratulate the people of Finland on the occasion of Independence Day.
Your country has achieved impressive results in social, economic, scientific and technical fields, which was largely attributed to the republic's traditional commitment to neutrality and peaceful coexistence in the region.
It is with great regret that we see Finland's deviation from this path under far-fetched pretexts, which has already had a very negative impact on the quality of life of the people of Finland.
Despite all the information fakes, Belarus has been and remains a reliable partner that has never caused problems for its neighbors and throughout its history has been a donor of stability and non-conflict cooperation.
I am sure that despite the political environment the peoples of our countries will be able to jointly maintain peace and the positive 30-year experience of bilateral relations. Belarus is interested in resuming an equal political dialogue with Finland, in promoting trade and economic cooperation, expanding scientific and humanitarian contacts.
I cordially wish all the people of Finland solidarity and confidence in the future.
To the people of the Republic of Finland
