The position of the official Minsk was expressed by Belarusian deputy foreign minister Aliaksandr Mikhnevich at the OSCE Ministerial Council, Interfax-West reports.

“The OSCE need to return to its initial mission, namely building the real society of security and cooperation, to overcome the crisis of confidence and the inertia of confrontation. In this regard we emphasized the urgent necessity of unconditional abandoning the policy of sanctions, economic and political pressure among the member states,” Mikhnevich said.

The head of the Belarusian delegation “spoke for the further process of reforms in the OSCE and turned attention to double standards in election observation that are still used by the OSCE.”
