Belarus calls for more active Minsk process on Ukraine

MINSK, 11 July (BelTA) – The Minsk process to promote peaceful settlement in Ukraine should continue, but it should be more active, Belarus President Alexander Lukashenko said at a meeting to discuss Belarus’ foreign policy priorities at the current stage, BelTA has learned.

“There are many people wishing to reap political dividends from participation in the process of promoting peaceful settlement in Ukraine. They think the Minsk format has become outdated and that they can do without it. But they do not offer any new initiatives to replace it. Therefore, the Minsk process should remain in place, but it should be stepped up,” the head of state noted.

Alexander Lukashenko said that Belarus is affected by the standoff in eastern Ukraine that damages regional security, restrains trade and increases the migration load.
