WARSAW, October 1 (Itar-Tass) — The special declaration of the summit of the Eastern Partnership initiative condemning the human rights situation in Belarus was signed only by the heads of state and government of the EU countries. Armenia, Azerbaijan, Georgia, Moldova and Ukraine refused to openly criticize Belarus, the spokesman for the Polish presidency of the EU, Konrad Niklewicz, said after the summit.
He said attempts had been made to develop a common position on the final text of the declaration, which included an assessment of the situation with human rights, laws and democratic standards in Belarus.
However, during this work it turned out that nothing would come of it, Niklewicz said.
The participants in the summit of the Eastern Partnership initiative inked the general voluminous text of the final declaration. The separate document was signed only by the European Union.
During the summit of the Eastern Partnership initiative there were held several parallel meetings of its members with representatives of the Belarusian opposition. Belarus’s official delegation on Friday refused to participate in the summit.
