MINSK, March 15, /ITAR-TASS/. The Belarusian Foreign Ministry has denied Polish media reports that Poland has detained two Belarusian diplomats suspected of spying for Russia.
“In connection with Polish media reports that a Belarusian diplomat has allegedly been caught in Poland, we are calling your attention to the fact that no Belarusian diplomats have recently been detained or taken into custody in Polish territory,” Dmitry Mironchik, an official spokesperson for the Foreign Ministry of Belarus, said on Friday.
Commenting on internal rotation of embassy staff and motives behind it, Mironchik said that the Belarusian side was not going to discuss issues related to the internal functioning of its diplomatic service without any reasonable grounds.
His statement followed press reports that the Polish Internal Security Agency had detained two Belarusian nationals suspected of spying for Russia and that the District Court of the City of Warsaw had received a request to arrest one of them.
The second suspect who turned out to be the military attachй of the Belarusian embassy in Poland was allegedly forced to leave the country a week ago.
