President of Belarus Alexander Lukashenko, answering in an interview with CNN TV company when asked about the landing of a Ryanair aircraft in Minsk, said that he was ready to guarantee the safety of flights over Belarus both personally for the journalist of the American channel and for any country, BelTA informs.
The President stressed that the safety of flights over Belarus has always been ensured – both before the incident with the Ryanair plane, and after that. “If you are afraid to fly over our territory, I can personally guarantee you, and your company, and your country, and any other, the complete safety of the flight over Belarus. The way it has always been. But if the law enforcement agencies and I see a threat to the Belarusian state, We will land any plane here, be it Great Britain, be it the United States of America. It will immediately land in Belarus if we feel a threat. You will do exactly the same. This is the norm. Therefore, I am not an exception here, “the Belarusian leader said.
