MINSK, July 30. /ITAR-TASS/. Belarus hopes for the speedy normalisation in Ukraine and will do everything to this end, Belarusian Deputy Foreign Minister Valentin Rybakov told reporters on Wednesday.

“The Belarusian president has repeatedly said that Belarus in no way seeks a mediator role in the settlement of the crisis in the neighbouring country, but will make everything to help normalise the situation there as quickly as possible,” Rybakov said.

According to him, “the actions that started yesterday and, hopefully, will be continued, will bring about normalisation within the shortest possible time.”

The Ukrainian head of state requested the Belarusian president to provide a venue in Belarus for the negotiations between all the parties concerned on the Ukrainian crisis settlement.
