MOSCOW, 13 June (BelTA-TASS) – The Government of Canada has adopted a decision to remove the trade restrictions imposed on Belarus in 2006, reads a statement published in the Canada Gazette, the official newspaper of the Government of Canada, on 12 July.

“Pursuant to the Government of Canada's commitment to diplomatic re-engagement with the international community, and in response to recent positive developments in Belarus, the Government of Canada announced its decision to remove Belarus from the Area Control List (ACL), thereby lifting measures that have been in place since December 2006,” the statement reads.

The ACL includes countries that are subject to measures to control the export or transfer of any goods and technology.

According to the statement, the decision indicates that “Canada recognizes the constructive role played by Belarus in facilitating negotiations toward a ceasefire and peace agreement in Ukraine.”
