MINSK, 18 September (BelTA) – The Presidium of the Council of the Republic, the upper chamber of the Belarusian parliament, has discussed the European Parliament's resolution on Belarus as of 17 September and adopted a corresponding statement, BelTA learned from the Council of the Republic.
“The Presidium of the Council of the Republic would like to draw attention to the biased and politicized nature of the resolution of the European Parliament on the situation in Belarus, which is an open interference in the country's domestic affairs. The resolution groundlessly denies the obvious fact - the convincing victory of the incumbent president of Belarus in the recent presidential election, while this victory was confirmed by numerous domestic and international observers. It also tries to present the minority as the majority, illegally supports unconstitutional actions and organizations. The resolution is fraught with numerous false statements and assessments, disinformation and overt threats,” the statement reads.
Instead of dealing with their own problems, the economic slowdown, the growing unemployment rate, the second wave of the COVID-19 pandemic claiming many lives, huge protests brutally suppressed by repressive bodies, MEPs are trying to split the Belarusian society, destabilize the political and economic situation in Belarus. The lack of an objective assessment of the situation in our country does not allow members of the European Parliament to put forward a constructive agenda for interaction with Belarus.
“We would like to emphasize that Belarusian people will deal with all the country's domestic issues on their own, will foster the evolutionary development of the economy, political system, social and humanitarian fields. We are ready to expand cooperation with our European partners, including parliamentarians, but we will do this on an equal and mutually respectful basis,” the statement reads.
