MINSK, 11 August (BelTA) – The people of Belarus reject violence, reads a joint statement of the Council of the Republic and the House of Representatives, BelTA reports.

The MPs strongly condemn attempts of small biased groups to drive a wedge between people and destabilize the situation in the country.

“We should not let the Belarusian youth become a bargaining chip in the attempts to foment tensions. Each citizen should respect law, while the state should maintain order. The response of the law enforcement is commensurate with provocations of participants of illegal street actions. Violence is not acceptable for Belarusian people,” the parliament emphasized.

The statement was released following Belarus' presidential election that took place on 9 August. The MPs thanked all the people who took part in this milestone event. “Active early voting and a high turnout on election day showed once again that Belarusians do care about the future of their country and are ready to take a responsibility for it. The absolute majority of people support the current policy of building a strong and independent state where people, their well-being and safety are a top priority,” the statement reads.
