MINSK: Nato has denied "baseless" allegations by Belarusian President Alexander Lukashenko that "foreign powers" were organising a build-up of troops on the country's border amid the ongoing tensions. In a statement, Nato said it posed "no threat to Belarus or any other country" and had "no military build-up in the region", the BBC reported.
"Our posture is strictly defensive," it said.
Nato's remarks come after Lukashenko, dressed in military fatigues, said on Saturday that he had placed his armed forces on "high alert" and accused Nato of trying to split up Belarus and install a new president in Minsk.
He said troops in Poland and Lithuania were readying themselves, and that he was moving his armed forces to the country's western border. (IANS)
