MINSK, February 29 (Itar-Tass) —— The recall of the ambassadors of the EU states for consultations from Minsk may have a positive effect and contribute to bringing the situation back to the constructive dialogue, spokesman of the Belarusian Foreign Ministry Andrei Savinykh said on Wednesday.
“If the ambassadors manage to explain during consultations in the capitals of their countries an unpromising policy of sanctions and pressure this will be positive,” he said. Savinykh also noted that “in this context their consultations may contribute to bringing the situation back to the constructive dialogue that Belarus offers.”
On February 28, the Belarusian authorities stated about the recall of the country’s ambassadors from Poland and the European Union after the EU had introduced a new package of sanctions and had recommended the ambassadors of Poland and the EU in Belarus “to go back to their capitals.” Several hours later the EU responded to this step with the recall of the ambassadors of all 27 EU states from Minsk.
