President of Belarus Alexander Lukashenko said that the creation of a new U.S. military base in the neighboring Poland would entail a joint response from Belarus and the Russian Federation.

“I told the foreign secretary, when he spoke in Minsk: we are not going to go to war with you. So don't set up excessive bases. Otherwise, we and the Russians will have to respond. This means we will have to deploy something so that we can counter you," Lukashenko said in Vitebsk, commenting on the recent offers to have a U.S. military base set up in Poland.
