Mora: I leave Belarus as relations with EU are improving

MINSK, 24 August (BelTA) – I am leaving Belarus as the relations with the European Union are improving, Head of the European Union Delegation in Belarus Maira Mora said as she met with Belarus President Alexander Lukashenko on 24 August. The meeting took place to mark the end of her diplomatic mission in the country, BelTA informs.

“I would like to see the relations remain like this in the future. We are neighbors and we should live in peace and concord,” Maira Mora said.

She thanked the President of Belarus for the high assessment of her diplomatic activity. Speaking about her successor, Maira Mora stressed: “I leave my beloved Belarus in good hands.”

Maira Mora said she was lucky to work in Belarus in two different posts, at first as Latvia’s Ambassador to Belarus and then as head of the European Union Delegation. “I have seen different Belarus. I was in Belarus in different times,” she noted.

The head of the EU Delegation believes it is important that the relations between Belarus and the EU are improving. "I am a diplomat. Conversations, contacts are our weapon. We should not shut each other off. On the contrary we need to discuss all issues, even the pressing ones, which I did all these years,” Maira Mora said.
