OTTAWA, May 8 /TASS/. The Government of Canada is going to lift sanctions on Belarus, the Canadian Foreign Ministry said on Saturday.
"Pursuant to the Government of Canada’s commitment to diplomatic re-engagement with the international community, and in response to recent positive developments in Belarus, Global Affairs Canada will initiate the regulatory process to remove Belarus from the Area Control List (ACL), thereby lifting sanctions that have been in place since December 14, 2006," the ministry said adding the announcement was consistent with actions taken by the United States and the European Union since October 2015.
