Belarus expects the consular department of the U.S. embassy in Minsk to expand work, BelTA learned from Dmitry Mironchik, Head of the Information Office, Press Secretary of the Belarusian Ministry of Foreign Affairs.

The Belarusian Ministry of Foreign Affairs regrets the fact that the U.S. embassy in Russia no longer accepts visa applications from Belarus citizens.

Dmitry Mironchik said that Belarus hopes that the American side will be able to find a way to expand the operation of the consular department of the U.S. embassy in Minsk. “We are convinced that granting the ability to get U.S. visas without leaving the country to Belarus citizens will be beneficial for the expansion of interpersonal ties and to the advancement of cooperation between our countries,” said the press secretary.

“It is regretful that relations between the Russian Federation and the United States of America continue deteriorating and start having a negative impact on ordinary Belarusians,” said Dmitry Mironchik. “With interests of Belarus and its citizens as our top priority, we hope that Russian-American relations will be normalized as soon as possible. We are convinced that the normalization of these relations would have a positive effect on the situation in the world as a whole.”
