MINSK, August 15 (Itar-Tass) — The EU sanctions on Belarus will not yield results, Russian Foreign Minister Sergei Lavrov said.
“Pressure on Belarus is not new. There were precedents and the EU realised that sanctions would be unsuccessful,” Lavrov said on Wednesday.
Such unilateral measures towards Belarus will not yield results, he added.
“As a rule the United States are in repute for such unilateral aggressive steps and extraterritorial sanctions. Now the EU has caught this example,” Lavrov said.
“Sanctions can be imposed only with the authorisation of the U.N. Security Council,” the minister said, adding that there were no other ways, but collective actions.
Commenting on any retaliatory measures, the Russian minister said unilateral actions “are not our method. We will not relinquish our principles by acting eye for eye”.
