MINSK, 26 April (BelTA) – Belarusian Deputy Minister of Foreign Affairs Yuri Ambrazevich took part in events held on 26 April to commemorate the 38th anniversary since the day of the accident at the Chernobyl nuclear power plant, the ministry’s press service told BelTA.

A ceremony to lay flowers at the memorial signs Chernobyl Victims and Hiroshima Peace Stone was timed to International Chernobyl Disaster Remembrance Day. It was instituted by the UN General Assembly’s resolution 71/125 “Persistent legacy of the Chernobyl disaster” in 2016. The resolution had been initiated by Belarus.

The Belarusian Ministry of Foreign Affairs stressed that Belarus takes persistent steps to overcome consequences of the accident at the Chernobyl nuclear power plant and prevent similar disasters in the future. The Belarusian state constantly interacts with the International Atomic Energy Agency (IAEA) as well as with interested countries and international institutions both in minimizing the consequences of the Chernobyl nuclear power plant catastrophe and in peaceful uses of nuclear energy.

The Belarusian Ministry of Foreign Affairs called all the states to embrace open, equal, and responsible interaction in matters of radiation safety.
