Official Washington believes that the visit of the self-proclaimed president of Belarus, Alexander Lukashenko, to Tehran takes place, among other things, in the interests of the Kremlin in order to deepen cooperation between Iran and Russia.

US State Department spokesman Ned Price said this during a press conference in Washington.

“Regarding Lukashenka’s visit to Iran, we see it as a further deepening of relations between Iran and Russia”– noted the representative of the US State Department.

In his words, the relationship between Moscow and Tehran has long aroused concern, in particular in the field of military cooperation between these two countries. At the same time, the Lukashenka regime’s connections to the Kremlin are disturbing, particularly the fact that he “essentially offered Russia to cede sovereignty” of its own state.

Against this background, the representative of the US State Department stressed that Washington is closely monitoring the development of cooperation between the Russian Federation and Iran, as well as the visit of the Belarusian dictator to Tehran.

As is known, Lukashenko and Iranian President Ibrahim Raisi have signed a “road map” of cooperation between countries for the period 2023-2026 based on the results of the negotiations in Tehran.

Recall that from February 28 to March 2 Lukashenko visited China, where he held talks with the President of the People’s Republic of China, Xi Jinping.

The day before, Lukashenko signed the law on execution for treason.
