Belarus condemns European Parliament resolution as "conspicuous political order"
Belarus looks upon the European Parliament resolution that was adopted in the run-up to an important domestic event – the parliamentary election – as nothing but a blatant political order by those European powers who are not interested in building good-neighborly relations with the Belarusian state, the press service of the Belarusian Foreign Ministry said commenting on the European Parliament resolution on Belarus passed on 5 July at a session in Strasbourg, BelTA has learnt.
“It has become a routine for the European Parliament to mass release one-sided and tendentious resolutions like this. It looks like the majority of the European Parliament members do not even read them, to say nothing of examining them carefully. Pursuing their own agenda, a specific group of the EU MPs just pushes forward a distorted idea of the situation in Belarus,” the commentary reads.
Another call for imposing sanctions on the country, albeit the policy of sanctions proved inefficient and dead-locked a long time ago, makes it even more difficult to resume a Belarus-Europe dialogue, the press service noted.
“Despite such unconstructive approaches by the European Parliament, Belarus is still interested in rapprochement with the European Union and its member states based on commonly recognized principles of equality and mutual respect,” the commentary reads.
