Minsk process on regulating the conflict in Ukraine should remain, but it ought to be more energetic, President of Belarus Alexander Lukashenko told in a meeting on foreign policy, according to BELTA.
“Lately there are many parties willing to appropriate participation in regulating conflict in Ukraine. They believe that the Minsk way has outlived its usefulness and we can make do without it. But, in fact, they don’t suggest anything new. This is why Minsk process should remain, but it ought to be more energetic,” he said.
Lukashenko added that Belarus is concerned about conflict in Eastern Ukraine, which weakens regional security, constrains trade and increases migration strain.
As it was reported earlier, OSCE Assembly prepared a resolution on de-occupation of Crimea, Donbas. The authors call on Russia to terminate the annexation of Crimea and follow the agreement on Donbas.
