MINSK, March 23 (Itar-Tass) —— Belarus has promised an imminent reaction to the EU additional sanctions.
“We have to give an imminent response. Our European partners were warned about that possibility in advance,” Belarusian Foreign Ministry spokesman Andrei Savinykh said. “Under the current circumstances, Belarus views as unnecessary the presence on the Belarusian territory of the recalled ambassadors of the countries, which have voted for the decision [sanctions].”
“Belarus regrets the decision of the EU Council to impose additional sanctions against certain Belarusian citizens and enterprises. This step will delay even more the prospect of normalization and resumption of the dialog on issues sensitive for the sides,” he said.
“The European politicians remain hostages of the conflict mentality and the logic of coercion and blackmail,” Savinykh said.
