«When you seek peace you must be strong. If you’re not strong, you will never reach the world, and you live in a state of war and instability. The worst thing in politics is losing. I’m sure, preparing for the game, you will not wonder: should I be strong and agile? This is a rhetorical question. Your game is no different from ours. The only difference is that, if we lose, the consequences of this loss will be felt for a long time», — said the head of government.
