Martin Sajdik remarked that at the same time the number of ceasefire regime violations has risen, inevitably resulting in new victims among the civilian population --- a mother and a daughter died last week. “This is why I once again call upon all the sides to prevent such things and show restrain,” stressed the OSCE special representative.
We need to understand that the relations at the level of governments and ministries represent just one-tenth of our capabilities. Actually the most interesting relationship is regional, at the level of business entities, Viktor Yushchenko said.
The sides discussed a broad range of matters relating to human rights, including the observance of human rights in Belarus and the USA. Interaction with international organizations on human rights was discussed, too.
“Russia is grateful to Belarus for the fact that while Russia's economy and trade may lose something due to the sanctions, the state of affairs is offset thanks to relations with such a staunch ally the Republic of Belarus is,” said the official.
