Belarus’ PM: Most people in Europe do not support Brussels’ hostile policy

MINSK, 19 February (BelTA) - Despite the openly hostile policy of European bureaucrats, we understand that the majority of the people of Europe do not support this policy, Belarusian Prime Minister Roman Golovchenko said as he met with President of the Republika Srpska, an entity in Bosnia and Herzegovina, Milorad Dodik, in Minsk on 19 February, BelTA has learned.

"The European establishment has imposed illegal sanctions against our country, which cover, among other things, medicine. We also know that, thanks to your firm position, Bosnia and Herzegovina is not a party to the sanctions regime against Belarus. We appreciate it very much," Roman Golovchenko said. “But Brussels officials, taking a duplicitous position, do not limit these supplies de jure, but de facto significantly hampered the supply of medical equipment and medicines to Belarus. Such is the ‘democratic care’ for people. However, we have dealt with this, rebuilt our procurement channels, and stepped up our own production of medical devices and medicines."

"Despite the openly hostile policy of European bureaucrats, we understand that the majority of people in Europe do not support such approaches. We are confident that sooner or later the situation will return to normal. It cannot be otherwise on the European continent. We have enough friends in Europe. We feel comfortable working with them, you included," the prime minister said. “As is our custom, we repay kindness in kind. If we can help in any way, we will. Thanks to your dedication,  we have organized close and scheduled cooperation in the field of the most high-tech types of medical care, in particular, transplantology for citizens of the Republika Srpska, and we will eagerly promote cooperation in this avenue."

Roman Golovchenko said that members of the delegation are touring Belarusian institutions, enterprises, organizations. Meetings with representatives of the National Academy of Sciences of Belarus are planned. "We have serious hopes for intensifying cooperation in these areas. In my opinion, we need to make the most of the potential of chambers of commerce and industry and business, to hold as many bilateral events as possible. I would like to take this opportunity and invite you to attend our main exhibition events t this year. This is the international exhibition in agriculture Belagro in June and the Belarusian Industrial and Investment Forum in September. We are also ready to listen to your vision for building our further work," the prime minister said.
