The decision may be ready by the June meeting of foreign ministers of the EU countries.

The European Union continues to work on the fourth package of sanctions against Belarus, spokesman for the European External Action Service Peter Stano said to naviny.by, commenting on the information that the decision on sanctions was postponed until June.

Earlier, the Prague editor of Radio Svaboda, Rikard Yuzviak, wrote on Twitter that the fourth package of sanctions would not be ready by the meeting of the Council of Foreign Ministers of the EU, scheduled for May 10. He suggested that the decision could be ready by the June meeting of EU foreign ministers.

"The work on sanctions is going on without reference to a specific date for their approval, - Stano noted. - The sanctions will be announced after all the discussions among EU members are over and all the necessary procedures are completed".

As for the meeting of the Council of EU foreign ministers on May 10, its agenda includes "Belarus. Exchanging Views."

"At the moment, the agenda of the meeting is still being finalized and will be announced on Friday," - Stano explained.
