European Parliament’s resolution on Belarus described as unconstructive

European Parliament’s resolution on Belarus described as unconstructive

MINSK, 6 April (BelTA) – The method of barks and admonitions that the European Parliament uses more often than not does not work with Belarus. Dmitry Mironchik, Head of the Information Office, Press Secretary of the Belarusian Ministry of Foreign Affairs, made the relevant statement when asked about the Ministry’s official stance on the resolution the European Parliament passed on 6 April to describe the situation in Belarus, BelTA has learned.

The official said: “The method of barks and admonitions that the European Parliament uses more often than not does not work with Belarus. Even justified criticism needs to be constructive and unprejudiced. It needs to take into account the objective reality and processes going on in our country and the region as a whole. The resolution demonstrates that the European Parliament did not try to achieve that. We understand that getting rid of anti-Belarus cliches takes time and political wisdom. We will wait…”

According to the press secretary, it is regrettable that members of the European Parliament lacked time or desire to familiarize themselves with the official point of view on the events that transpired two weeks ago and to clarify all the issues via a direct dialogue.

“We are ready to discuss any topics with our foreign partners. We are ready to give answers to any questions, including about matters we disagree. It is in this manner that we’ve been communicating with those representatives of the European Union, who are genuinely concerned about the future of relations with Belarus,” said Dmitry Mironchik.

The official reminded that a delegation from Brussels has been in Minsk this week and has had substantial negotiations with representatives of government agencies during the session of the Belarus-European Union coordinating group.
