Belarus, in response to the EU sanctions, prohibits the entry of representatives of European structures and persons from EU countries who contributed to the introduction of restrictive measures, the republic’s Foreign Ministry said on Monday.
“In response, representatives of European structures and persons from European Union countries who contributed to the introduction of restrictive measures will be banned from entering Belarus. The Belarusian side continues to develop other response measures, including of an economic nature,” the statement issued by the Foreign Ministry says.
At the same time, the Foreign Ministry hopes that officials of the EU and its member states are aware of the “inferiority and futility of decisions on the use of a forceful approach” in relations with Minsk.
“The proposals of the Belarusian side on the development of dialogue, interaction, and cooperation with the European Union based on the principles of equality and mutual respect remain in force,” the statement emphasizes.
