The border policy of Belarus is not aimed at confrontation with neighboring states, but at strengthening the neighborhood belt. This was stated by President Alexander Lukashenko when approving the decision on protection of the state border. The situation at the Belarusian borders is among the most important issues of state policy. The international situation urges to keep the outer contour of the state on a constant basis. Following a detailed discussion on topical issues of protecting Belarusian borders, the President approved the decision to guard the state border. Border security in the southern direction, infrastructure development, and clear work during the II European Games are the priorities of the department’s work for this year.
