Call on EU to stop inhumane policy towards civilians at the border

MINSK, 2 December (BelTA) - The EU must stop its inhumane policy towards civilians at the border, Chairman of the House of Representatives Vladimir Andreichenko said at a meeting of the 61st session of the Parliamentary Assembly of the Union State of Belarus and Russia in Minsk on 2 December, BelTA has learned.

“Today, we will review a statement of the Parliamentary Assembly in connection with the migrant crisis on the border of Belarus and the European Union. The adoption of this statement will be our next attempt to appeal to Western inter-parliamentary organizations. The EU must stop its inhumane policy towards civilians. It is important to give an objective assessment of what is happening and to facilitate the speedy resolution of the current situation," Vladimir Andreichenko said.

The Speaker suggested the Parliamentary Assembly step up the practice of making statements on topical issues of the international agenda. "Our opponents should clearly understand that our position is united and we will resolutely defend our interests," he added.

The MPs are set to recognize the powers of the Parliamentary Assembly members delegated by the Federation Council and the State Duma of the Federal Assembly of Russia and will elect the chairman and deputy chairman of the Parliamentary Assembly. In addition, new members of the commissions will be approved and chairmen and vice-chairmen will be elected.

One of the main items on the agenda is the discussion of measures to implement Ordinance No. 6 “On the Guiltiness to Implement the Provisions of the Union State Treaty in 2021-2023" adopted by the Supreme State Council of the Union State on 4 November 2021.

The MPs will consider the Union State integration programs and legislative support for their implementation. The MPs are also set to look into the situation on the Belarusian-Polish and Belarusian-Lithuanian borders and the reaction of the European Union and other international organizations to the problem of international migration.

"We have a lot of work to do to promote integration, preserve our values, and improve the quality of life of citizens of Belarus and Russia. It depends on each of us how quickly and efficiently we will move along this path," Vladimir Andreichenko added. I would like to wish us good luck. I am sure that by joint efforts we will defend the right of our peoples to determine their own future."
