Germany, France, and Poland made a joint statement on the eve of the presidential election in Belarus. European countries expect the Belarusian authorities to hold fair elections. This was reported by the press service of Germany’s Foreign Ministry.
"We, the Ministers of Foreign Affairs of France, Germany, and Poland, observe the ongoing developments in Belarus with great concern. On the eve of the presidential elections, we firmly stand by the right of the Belarusian people to exercise their fundamental freedoms, including electoral rights, and support the independence and sovereignty of the Republic of Belarus,” the message reads.
EU countries are also concerned that neither OSCE/ODIHR, nor OSCE PA or PACE were given the opportunity to observe the electoral process. Therefore, they urge Belarusian authorities to conduct the upcoming presidential election in a free and fair manner, including ensuring independent monitoring by local observers.
