Press Secretary Andrei Savinykh comments on UN official apologies
We are satisfied with apologies made by the UN senior officials sent to the Belarusian side by an official note and voiced on 2 March in the course of a briefing by Deputy Secretary General of the UN.
We are ready to consider the reported false accusations of the Republic of Belarus of the breach of Security Council sanctions as an accidental and unintentional mistake.
We also hope that such mistakes will be ruled out in future.
The Republic of Belarus considers the UN Security Council as a key element in the global system of international security. We are ready to do everything in our power to strengthen the role of this body of the United Nations and implement all of its decisions without fail.
Verbal note by the UN Department of Peacekeeping Operations sent to the Permanent Delegation of the Republic of Belarus
