Merkel's call might be a sign that the EU is beginning to recover some common sense, Chairman of the Standing Committee on International Affairs of the House of Representatives Andrei Savinykh told BelTA while commenting on another telephone conversation between Belarusian President Aleksandr Lukashenko and Germany's acting Chancellor Angela Merkel the day before.
"In fact, we see the first signs of the EU taking a sensible position. Before that, the EU countries used the language of ultimatums, the language of force. Before that, we saw systemic propaganda against Belarus, attempts to denigrate our country and falsely accuse us of engineering the migrant crisis. In my opinion, Merkel's call may mean that the old Europe is beginning to show signs of sanity," Andrei Savinykh said.
This can be seen as a positive signal that "the EU will finally begin to solve the existing problems in a constructive way,” the MP added.
