MINSK, March 24. /ITAR-TASS/. Belarus does not see the need to recall its ambassador from Ukraine following Ukraine’s decision to recall its ambassador from Minsk for consultations, Dmitry Mironchik, the press secretary of the Belarusian Foreign Ministry told Itar-Tass on Monday.
“In connection with reports to recall the Ukrainian ambassador from Belarus to Kiev, the Belarusian side does not see the need to recall the Belarusian ambassador from Kiev,” Mironchik said.
Yevgeny Perebeinos, the director of the information policy department of the Ukrainian Foreign Ministry, told a briefing earlier on Monday that the Ukrainian ambassador in Belarus had been recalled for consultations.
“Following a statement made by President Alexander Lukashenko on March 22, the Foreign Ministry (of Ukraine) has recalled the Ukrainian ambassador from Belarus for consultations and sent a note to the Belarusian side saying that the remarks of the Belarusian president were contradicting universally recognized norms of international law and the position of most countries of the world which condemned Russia’s actions,” Perebeinos stressed.
Earlier, Lukashenko said that Belarus had recognized de facto that Crimea was part of Russia.
