Lukashenko comments on statements on possible settlement of Ukrainian conflict outside Minsk format

Lukashenko comments on statements on possible settlement of Ukrainian conflict outside Minsk formatMINSK, 15 June (BelTA) – Belarus President Alexander Lukashenko commented on the statements suggesting that the conflict in eastern Ukraine can be resolved through means that would lie outside of the framework of the Minsk Accords during a meeting with the secretaries of the security councils of the CSTO member states on 15 June, BelTA has learned.

The head of state said that the CSTO security secretaries have gathered in the historical hall that hosted the Normandy Four talks who worked out the landmark Minsk Accords. Unfortunately, the Minsk agreements are not implemented in full. “In the recent week they have come under criticism by the states who should have sat down at the negotiating table and should have joined this format,” the Belarusian leader said.

“There have been certain statements that they can do without the Minsk format, find some other ways to resolve the Ukrainian conflict,” the Belarusian president said. “Of course, they can. But it is always more difficult to start from the beginning than to continue a good thing.”
