    BREST (BELARUS), March 31, 2004. (RIA Novosti). According to Belarussian President Alexander Lukashenko, the air space on the Belarussian border is under control.

    "None of the former Soviet republics and East European countries, which joined NATO, controls its air space like Belarus does," Mr. Lukashenko said answering a question on NATO eastward expansion and flights of NATO planes along the Belarussian border.

    NATO fighters started guarding the air space of Latvia, Lithuania and Estonia on Monday, March 29.

    Belarus does not admit NATO eastward expansion. "I announced our position in 1995 and have been watchful since then," the Belarussian President noted.
