MINSK, July 19 (Itar-Tass) - Belarusian Foreign Minister Vladimir Makei will take part in a meeting of the foreign ministers of the Eastern Partnership due to be held in Brussels on July 22, the Foreign Ministry reported on Friday.
“The visit will be made at the invitation of EU High Representative for Foreign Affairs and Security Policy Catherine Ashton and European Commissioner for the Enlargement and European Neighbourhood Policy Stefan Fule,” the ministry said.
Makei’s trip to Brussels became possible after the Council of EU Foreign Ministers had excluded the Belarusian foreign minister from the list of those who were banned to enter the EU territory.
Being presidential chief of staff Makei was included in the EU sanction list in January 2011. Then the EU leadership decided that he was involved in dispersing the protest action after the presidential elections in Minsk on December 19, 2010.
