MINSK, 3 December (BelTA) – The blind imposition of invented standards does not contribute to development, but destroys the sovereignty, Belarusian Minister of Foreign Affairs Vladimir Makei said as he spoke at the meeting of the OSCE Ministerial Council in Stockholm, BelTA has learned.

“Our Western partners teach Belarus their ‘ideal' version of democracy,” said the minister. “However, when it comes to their own political or economic interests, they prefer a different democracy, ‘the one for home use',” he added.

The minister pointed out: “The countries neighboring Belarus have directly violated a dozen fundamental international treaties and conventions over the past two months. There is no international response. What is that supposed to mean?”

He added: “It is time to admit, as President Macron has recently done, that artificial and blind imposition of invented standards does not contribute to the evolutionary development of any nation, state or society. It only throws that development back and destroys sovereignty.
