Belarus to mark Mother Language Day in National Library on 21 February

MINSK, 14 February (BelTA) – An event timed to the Mother Language Day and the 25th anniversary of the Belarusian Constitution will take place in the National Library on 21 February, Anatoly Glaz, Head of the Information and Digital Diplomacy Office, Press Secretary of the Belarusian Ministry of Foreign Affairs, told the media on 14 February, BelTA has learned.

Invitations to take part in the event were sent to diplomats accredited in Belarus, members of the Commission of the Republic of Belarus for UNESCO and the commission’s chairman, Minister of Foreign Affairs Vladimir Makei. “This theme was chosen for a reason.
