MINSK, 28 January (BelTA) – Belarusian President Aleksandr Lukashenko named three key principles of the social policy in Belarus as he delivered the Address to the Belarusian people and the National Assembly in Minsk on 28 January, BelTA has learned.


"Belarus is a welfare state. The country has built a reliable mechanism for helping people, providing mutual support and ensuring social justice," Aleksandr Lukashenko said.


The head of state noted that the country's policy is based on simple and understandable principles. "The first principle is justice. We felt how important it was. Three or four years ago, I said that the demand for justice would be growing. The implementation of this principle made it possible to ensure a balanced distribution of social benefits and to provide equal access to them for every Belarusian, as much as possible," he stated. “The second principle is responsibility. The state consistently fulfills its obligations to society, guaranteeing comprehensive and large-scale support throughout a person's life."


The third principle is support. "It is expressed in a broad and extensive system of social assistance to vulnerable categories of the population and people in difficult life situations," the Belarusian leader added.
