Minsk backs Moscow proposals for G20 summit - Lukashenko

MINSK. March 31 (Interfax) - Minsk supports Moscow's proposals for the G20 summit in London, which were made public several weeks ago, Belarusian President Alexander Lukashenko said.

"It will be good if Russia's position is set out unchanged in the same shape that was declared several weeks ago. Belarus would unequivocally support this position. Unthrifty spending, mortgages and so on - all this should be under control, and control tools definitely need to be set up," Lukashenko said at a meeting with Nizhny Novgorod region Governor Valery Shantsev in Minsk on Tuesday.

"The Americans are trying to lobby the previous model and are saying tacitly that it would be wrong to debunk the market economy," Lukashenko said.

"In other words, what they are saying is: it is wrong to debunk the con game that has led to this crisis," the Belarusian presidential press service quoted Lukashenko as saying at the meeting.

The ongoing global economic crisis is rooted from "huge corruption on a global scale," Lukashenko said.

"A lot in this crisis is unclear, but the psychological and moral component in it is very big," he said.
