Belarus' Constitutional Court: No state can interfere in affairs of another state

MINSK, 15 December (BelTA) – No state has the right to interfere in the domestic and foreign affairs of another state, Chairman of the Constitutional Court Piotr Miklashevich said as he announced the Constitutional Court's decision on the case “On compliance with generally recognized principles and norms of international law of documents adopted (published) by the European Union and some foreign states and their government bodies on introducing restrictive measures against the Republic of Belarus”, BelTA has learned.

“The principle of non-interference in domestic affairs means that no state or group of states has the right to interfere, directly or indirectly, for whatever reason, in the internal and external affairs of another state. All forms of interference aimed against the legal capacity of any state run afoul of international law,” Piotr Miklashevich said.

The Constitutional Court views the restrictive measures imposed on Belarus in violation of the UN founding documents as interference in the domestic affairs of a sovereign state, which contradicts paragraphs 1 and 7 of Article 2 of the UN Charter.

“According to the Charter of Economic Rights and Duties of States, no state may use or encourage the use of economic, political or any other type of measures to coerce another state in order to obtain from it the subordination of the exercise of its sovereign rights,” the chairman of the Constitutional Court said.
