MINSK, 10 February (BelTA) - The statement of the Lithuanian and Polish parliaments is a clumsy attempt to interfere with the internal affairs of Belarus, Chairman of the Standing Committee on Foreign Affairs of the House of Representatives Andrei Savinykh told the media as he commented on the joint statement adopted by the Committees on Foreign Affairs of the Parliaments of Lithuania and Poland on the occasion of the 275th birthday of Tadeusz Kosciuszko, BelTA has learned.

“Paying tribute to outstanding countryman Tadeusz Kosciuszko, his aspiration for the ideals of freedom and justice, his talent and historical legacy on the occasion of his birthday, we note with deep regret that the Committees on Foreign Affairs of the Parliaments of Poland and Lithuania have used this historic date in a clumsy and misplaced attempt to interfere with Belarus' internal affairs,” said Andrei Savinykh.

The Belarusian MP urged his foreign colleagues to stop making attempts to manipulate historical events in their petty and unconvincing political games. “The desire to use the historical personalities as a front for groundless statement vividly shows that the attempts to destabilize the situation in our country have failed.”
