MINSK, November 25 /TASS/. The European Parliament’s resolution on Belarus damages the fragile process of normalizing relations between Brussels and Minsk, Belarusian Foreign Ministry Spokesman Dmitry Mironchik said on Friday as he commented on a document adopted a day earlier on Thursday.
"There is a feeling of ‘deja vu’ or ‘we have been there before’," Mironchik said. This document does not reflect the spirit of the current Belarusian-EU interaction but is obviously damaging the recently started fragile process of normalizing our relations," the Belarusian Foreign Ministry official went on to say.
The diplomat described the European Parliament’s resolution on Belarus as a new handiwork stamped in the parliament’s walls.
"A number of absolutely false messages and assertions indicate that some European MPs do not have the slightest desire to understand what’s going on in the European region and preserve their negative attitude towards Belarus," Mironchik emphasized.
The resolution claims, among other things, that attempts to change the Belarusian election laws were insufficient. The European deputies repeated their request that Minsk put a moratorium on the death penalty. They also voiced their concern about the safety of the construction of a nuclear power plant in the city of Ostrovets in Belarus’s Grodno region.
