MINSK, March 17./ITAR-TASS/. Belarus considers sanctions against Russian officials counter-productive.
“Belarus comes against using sanctions as an instrument to achieve foreign political and economic goals, Foreign Ministry spokesman Dmitry Mironchik told Itar-Tass on Monday.
Such methods “are ineffective and counter-productive, moreover against a permanent member of the UN Security Council. Sanctions can only lead to further escalation of tension, restriction of contacts, mutual mistrust and misunderstanding”, the spokesman said.
Disagreements should be settled exclusively by dialogue and talks, the Belarusian diplomat said.
