Alexander Lukashenko at "Big Conversation with the President"

Alexander Lukashenko in a conversation with German acting Chancellor Angela Merkel said that the European Union should create a humanitarian corridor for 2,000 refugees. Details of the conversation between the two leaders were revealed by Lukashenko's spokeswoman Natalya Eismant, BelTA reports.

According to the agreements, Merkel should negotiate with the EU, in particular on the humanitarian corridor, the spokeswoman said.

In return, the Belarusian leader allegedly promised to facilitate the return of all other migrants to their homeland, Eismant added. She stressed that there are currently a total of 7,000 refugees in Belarus.

Lukashenko's spokeswoman also noted that Belarus had allegedly already begun to fulfill its promises, and on November 18, 374 people flew from Minsk to Baghdad.

The rest of the illegal migrants, according to Eismant, are still waiting to be sent to the EU and flatly refuse to return to Iraq, but Minsk will work on it.

Earlier Angela Merkel discussed on a telephone with the president of Belarus Alexander Lukashenko ways to solve the problem of accumulation of migrants near borders of the European Union. During the dialogue between the leaders of the two countries, special attention was paid to humanitarian support for refugees.

On November 8, hundreds of migrants were seen at the Polish-Belarusian border. Therefore, the Polish government immediately pulled the soldiers on alert to the borders, and Lukashenko asked for help from Russian aviation to guarantee security at the country's borders.

It soon became known that the Belarusian security forces were trying to push 35 people to the Polish border, the overwhelming majority of whom were women and children.

The Minister of Internal Affairs Denys Monastyrsky stated that a state of emergency may be imposed in the regions bordering Belarus if the situation aggravates.
