The US President welcomed Svetlana Tsihanouskaya at the White House.

Svetlana, who is continuing her visit to the US, met US President Joe Biden at the White House.

A correspondent of the Voice of America at the White House reported it.

Leaving the White House, Tsihanouskaya told Voice of America:

"Yes, I met with the President of the United States of America. You know how busy President Biden is. The meeting did not last long - about 15 minutes - but it was a very warm welcome. I saw a man who cares about the situation in Belarus.

I delivered our messages to the President that the struggle in Belarus was not a geopolitical one. It is our struggle against violence and lawlessness. We share the same values, and I am leaving the White House confident that the United States will be with the Belarusians now and after the new elections. I believe that everything we have discussed with Mr. Biden's advisers and his representatives will be fulfilled.
