MINSK, December 11 (Itar-Tass) — Belarus’ President Alexander Lukashenko said on Tuesday he hoped common sense would prevail in the relations between Minsk and the European Union.
“We see real reasons underlying the European Union’s policy towards Belarus. I believe common sense will finally prevail,” he said a meeting with journalists from CIS and Baltic countries, and Georgia.
The European Union, according to Lukashenko, accuses Belarus of violations of human rights, whereas it is responsible for “eradicating entire states.”
“Do you care now about Afghanistan, Iraq, Libya, Syria, Egypt? You have killed thousands of people there. What human rights you are talking about,” he said.
The Belarusian leaders stressed he shared Russia’s response to the situation around “a Magnitsky.”
According to Lukashenko, the European Union is ready to have relations with Minsk only after “there is no Lukashenko here, the political system is changed and everything is put on sale here.” Europe, in his words, is following a fixed course towards Belarus, often under pressure from the United States.
