Belarusian delegation calls OSCE to forget about human rights
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.”
