MINSK, 26 November (BelTA) - The EU needs to look for a solution to the situation on the border in cooperation with Belarus, Chairman of the Standing Commission on International Affairs and National Security of the Council of the Republic Sergei Rachkov told the media, BelTA has learned.

"A political solution is needed. In the telephone conversation with Germany's Acting Chancellor Angela Merkel, the Belarusian president proposed a certain algorithm of actions. A solution must be found in any case. And, as they say in diplomacy, the ball is in the court of the European Union. Our European partners should act, rather than talk about new sanctions against the Republic of Belarus that fully complies with international, humanitarian law, provides assistance to disadvantaged people who have been forced to seek shelter in another country," Sergei Rachkov said.

The senator noted that many of those, who are now stranded on the Belarusian-Polish border, have families in the EU. These people seek to reunite their families.

"The European Union needs to look for a solution in cooperation with the Belarusian head of state," Sergei Rachkov said.
