MINSK, 20 September (BelTA) – It is important to use every opportunity to convey the position of Belarus to the international community, Chairman of the House of Representatives Vladimir Andreichenko said at the opening of the ninth session of the House of Representatives of the National Assembly of the seventh convocation in Minsk on 20 September, BelTA has learned.
"The West's destructive policy has already created a lot of problems for its own citizens. Against this background, the OSCE's authority and ability to influence the processes of building confidence, security and stability in the region are rapidly crumbling," Vladimir Andreichenko said.
But it is for this reason that we should not abandon parliamentary contacts with the West, he noted. "It is important to use every opportunity to convey our position to those political forces, including European ones, that are tired of anti-Belarusian rhetoric and realize the harmfulness of the policy of double standards, dictate and sanctions. The OSCE PA is quite suitable for this. There are still some sensible politicians there," the speaker said.
