MINSK, 18 April (BelTA) - The Ministry of Foreign Affairs of Belarus gathered representatives of the diplomatic missions accredited in the country to give an explanation with regard to the landscaping project in Kuropaty. The meeting was held on the initiative of the Ministry of Foreign Affairs to avoid speculation and wrong associations, Belarusian Minister of Foreign Affairs Vladimir Makei told the media, BelTA has learned.

“We deemed it necessary to invite diplomats and explain to them some of the things to avoid any unnecessary speculation and wrong associations. It is clear that every person is entitled to their opinion. We have different views on events happening in the country or abroad. It is OK. What is important is to look for common ground rather than try to fuel confrontation,” Vladimir Makei said.

Vladimir Makei said that the official information about the landscaping project in Kuropaty was conveyed to representatives of the diplomatic corps. “This should be a memorial place, it should be tidied up. From the point of view of normal human logic, it should be the place where one could come to pay tribute to the memory of those who were executed and buried here,” he said. The minister stressed that the decision to landscape the place is absolutely correct and considers it important that all legislative requirements should be met since this is a historical and cultural complex.
