Andreichenko: PACE’s policy on Belarus is futile

BARANOVICHI, 26 January (BelTA) – The position of the Parliamentary Assembly of the Council of Europe (PACE) on Belarus has no prospects, Chairman of the House of Representatives of the National Assembly of Belarus Vladimir Andreichenko said as he visited the Druzhba poultry on 26 January, BelTA has learnt.

Commenting on the resolution passed by the Parliamentary Assembly of the Council of Europe on toughening sanctions against Belarus, Vladimir Andreichenko emphasized, “This is an absolutely futile and unproductive way.” “We need to meet each other halfway and Belarus has done a lot to meet the demands of the Council of Europe,” he said.

Vladimir Andreichenko informed that Belarus cooperated with the EU on registration of public associations, establishment of an information office of the Council of Europe and took into consideration recommendations on legislation. “Do not pressurize us, we are an independent sovereign state and will figure out what to do,” Vladimir Andreichenko underlined.
