Makei: Those who demand sanctions against their people will never be needed by this country

MINSK, 3 December (BelTA) - Those who demand the strangling of their people through destructive sanctions will never be needed by this country, Belarusian Minister of Foreign Affairs Vladimir Makei said as he spoke at the meeting of the OSCE Ministerial Council in Stockholm, BelTA has learned.

“Today Belarus is being presented as ‘devil incarnate', ‘embodiment of the absolute evil'. My country, like all our countries though, may be criticized for many things. Nobody is perfect. But have we ever wondered who benefits from sanctions' pressure on Belarus? Who will benefit from the destruction of the country's statehood?” the minister said.

“Please remember the simple truth: those who in fact demand the strangling of their people through destructive sanctions will never be accepted by this people and will not be in demand in this country. Today some of my colleagues say openly that we should simply change the government in Belarus. They say that Belarus is a bad example of disobedience for other states,” Vladimir Makei said.

According to the minister, this is a weird and awful logic. “It results in Belarus being punished not just by individual sanctions, but by whole packages of sanctions. It is being punished only because we have revealed the ‘dark side' of European democracy.”
