The trilateral contact group issued a statement that reads that the contact group and representatives of certain districts of Ukraine's Donetsk Oblast and Lugansk Oblast welcome the determination of all the participants of the Minsk process to ensure full respect of the ceasefire declared in view of the upcoming Easter holidays.
There is no alternative to the Minsk accords. The trilateral contact group together with representatives of certain districts of Ukraine's Donetsk Oblast and Lugansk Oblast intends to step up its work in the areas of security, politics, humanitarian affairs and economy, the statement reads.
“We believe that the normalization of relations will open up new opportunities for the expansion of cooperation. Bulgaria will continue supporting Belarus in the Eastern Partnership initiative,” the diplomat said.
The diplomat stressed that 25 years is a big period in the relations between Belarus and Bulgaria, on the occasion of which the ministers of foreign affairs of the two countries exchanged letters of congratulations.
