EU Has Decided To Impose Sanctions On Belarus
In the declaration, “The EU follows developments in Belarus very closely and with increasing concern. The 9 August elections were neither free nor fair, so we do not recognize the results ”. The statement said, “The Belarusian people have the right to determine their future. The members of the Council of Europe express their open solidarity with the Belarusian people in their desire to exercise their basic democratic rights ”.
“We call on the Belarusian authorities to find a way out of the crisis by ending violence, reducing tensions, and through an inclusive national dialogue,” the Belarusian administration recalled in the statement. “Only a peaceful and democratic process supported by an independent and free media and a strong civil society can provide sustainable solutions.”
