News Agency “BelaPAN”: How do you evaluate the decision of the EU to extend the arms embargo and restrictions against four individuals in Belarus?
A.Glaz: We took note of the information on the EU decision. It causes nothing but regret. Sanctions are a relic of the past. They totally contradict the current nature of relations between Belarus and the EU which are becoming increasingly meaningful and constructive.
I am sure that pragmatic and trustful cooperation between us on a growing range of topics of mutual interest will sooner or later overpower the logic of sanctions that have proven their ineffectiveness.
Belarus, for its part, is ready for full-fledged good-neighborly relations and partnership with the EU.
