A conversation with Clinton occurred on the sidelines of the international summit. Then the 42nd President of the United States was going to leave his post and, according to Lukashenka, did not know what to do after that.
“I Yeltsin said: “Hey, Boris, let’s offer him a position? In the Federal government it will take a leader, he’s still our submission will solve there problems”,” — said the Belarusian leader. In response, Yeltsin laughed along with him — and Clinton himself.
Lukashenka has also offered to compare the performance of the presidents in the former Soviet Union and the United States. In his opinion, it “two big differences” as the heads of Russia and Belarus need to “engage and farms, and potatoes and not just opinions of people.” “Therefore the foreign experience have to be careful, not only at the top, but in General,” — concluded Lukashenko.
At the end of 2018, the President of Belarus said Yeltsin had taught him how to respond to criticism in the media. Lukashenko said that the Russian ex-leader was the only person with whom he could drink.
