Belarussian President Alexander Lukashenko believes that time has come to expand defence-related cooperation with Russia, including arms exports. In his words, cooperation between the two countries in exporting arms and military hardware to foreign markets "is no secret." "We have something to sell, most importantly, we do not break international norms and standards," Mr. Lukashenko said.
