There is a constructive depoliticization process underway in the EU's Eastern Partnership initiative, Belarusian Deputy Minister of Foreign Affairs Oleg Kravchenko told the media at the forum “The European Union and its Eastern Partners: Current approaches to regional cooperation” on 11 December.

“In my opinion, the understanding of the EaP has been undergoing certain changes and constructive depoliticization,” Oleg Kravchenko remarked.

In his words, the countries are beginning to understand that the EaP should not have too many political elements. This is self-defeating for the core of the initiative and the implementation of specific projects. This approach to the EaP was worked out at the Brussels summit on 24 November 2017.

“We are interested in the EaP. The initiative will keep developing and becoming more and more pragmatic, understandable for our people. This is, however, yet to be done,” the diplomat stressed.
