MINSK, February 29 (Itar-Tass) — The officials in Minsk believe that the policy of the European Union towards Belarus is aimed at escalating tensions in bilateral relations, Belarusian Foreign Ministry spokesman Andrei Savinykh said on Wednesday.

“A nervous reaction of the European Union to an offer of Belarus to hold a round of consultations of the ambassadors to the EU and Poland in their capitals testifies to just one thing – Brussels’ choice of the road towards an escalation of tensions,” Andrei Savinykh told reporters.

According to him, this is “going to impasse”. Officials in Brussels and in EU capitals must not forget that the tactic of intimidation is not efficient with regard to Belarus,” the spokesman said.

He stressed that normalization of relations is impossible on unilateral terms, on terms of coercive methods. “Only a dialogue on a mutually acceptable basis maintained in the atmosphere of mutual respect will yield a constructive result. We hope our partners will understand that,” the diplomat stressed.
