RIGA, May 22./TASS/. The Eastern Partnership summit under way in Riga has supported a more active development of relations with Belarus, says a section of its final document that has already been coordinated.
The document says participants in the summit expect a restart of the EU-Belarus dialogue on human rights and on some other projects.
In October 2014, the Council of the European Union extended for a year restrictions against Belarus. They include embargo on the supply of armaments and equipment that may be used for domestic repressions, as well as freeze of assets and ban on EU trips for people, whom Brussels holds responsible for human rights violations. The list has more than 200 names, including the president, Alexander Lukashenko.
