Belarus' President Alexander Lukashenko will not be included in the European Union's sanctions list against Belarusian statesmen and officials, the German newspaper Die Welt reports.

"According to Welt, Lukashenko will not appear in the list of EU sanctions. This was endorsed primarily by Germany, which was supported by France and Italy," the newspaper writes.

Journalists note that this decision was made in order to leave open "channels for dialogue" with Lukashenko. According to Germany, France, and Italy, personal sanctions against the Belarusian president will cause diplomatic difficulties.

At the same time, it is emphasized that many EU countries were voting in favour of including Lukashenko in the list of sanctions (such as Poland, as well as the Baltic countries).

As we reported earlier, on August 31, Latvian Foreign Minister Edgars Rinkēvičs added Alexander Lukashenko and 29 other high-ranking Belarusian citizens to the list of people banned from entering the country.

The same decisions were made by the Foreign Ministries of Estonia and Lithuania.
