That was the main thing,” Peskov noted.Peskov added that Moscow and Minsk will update their approaches to security guarantees due to the development of the situation in the world.”As the international security situation has changed we must update our conceptual approaches. And Russia, of course, should consider the possibility of providing security guarantees for Belarus as its ally and as a country with which we are in the most advanced form of integration,” Peskov said.
