Belarus will decide upon the issue of recognition of South Ossetia and Abkhazia and will not "sell" its position, stated Alexander Lukashenka, the President of Belarus, in the interview to the editors of known Russian press, the press service of the President informed - RIA Novosti.


Lukashenka mentioned he was presented conditions; in case Belarus recognizes the two republics, it will be granted USD 500 mln tranche of Russian credit. "That's how it happened - they came and said: if there is Ossetia and Abkhazia there is USD 500 mln", Belarusian leader said.

"We don't want to sale any issues or positions. In our history we never had it and will never have. We'll decide this issue by ourselves. Moreover, we agreed with the Abkhazian leader Sergei Bagapsh, and after that met with Eduard Kokoyty. They have no questions to us. They understand our position", he added.

"All Russian leaders tell me: it has nothing to do with it. If you recognize them - it's good, if you don't recognize them - nevermind. But I know what they expect of Belarus! Firstly, surely, it is not a question for. Recognize or not, now, tomorrow, the day after tomorrow. Comparing with what is happening around Belarus, it's not the most important thing. But we understand that yes, for Russia this recognition wouldn't be unnecessary", Lukashenka said.

The question of recognition of South Ossetia and Abkhazia wasn't included in the spring session of Belarusian parliament, but its leaders say it can be done any moment. President Lukashenka previously mentioned the decision on possibility of recognition will be made by the parliament.
