Belarus orders Washington

Belarusian Chancellor Vladimir Makei warned US State Department adviser Derek Chollet that pressure on his government was counterproductive.

According to the Belarusian Foreign Ministry, the two officials had a telephone conversation earlier in the week, when Makei asked Washington to objectively assess the situation in Belarus.

In response to Washington’s concerns expressed by Chollet during the dialogue, the Belarusian foreign minister stressed “that attempts to put pressure on a sovereign state are counterproductive”.

“Makei also warned the interlocutor not to try to influence the work of the Belarusian security forces or the Belarusian judiciary,” the Belarusian foreign ministry noted.

After the presidential election of August 9, 2020 won by incumbent President Alexander Lukashenko, Belarus has been the scene of opposition protests, which do not recognize the election results and demand a reissue.
