The Permanent Representative of Belarus to the European Union was recalled to Minsk for consultations, and the head of the EU Delegation was invited to leave for Brussels

TBILISI, June 28 – Sputnik. Belarus suspends its participation in the EU initiative “Eastern Partnership” and starts the procedure of “freezing” the Readmission Agreement with the EU, Sputnik Belarus reports.

According to the charter of the EU program, the Eastern Partnership is aimed at the political and economic integration of the EU with six countries: Azerbaijan, Armenia, Belarus, Georgia, Moldova and Ukraine.

The Belarusian Foreign Ministry on Monday announced some retaliatory sanctions against the European Union. Due to the restrictions imposed by Brussels on Belarus, the Head of the EU Delegation to the Republic of Belarus Dirk Schuebel was summoned to the Ministry of Foreign Affairs.

“The diplomat was informed about concrete steps within the framework of a forced response to actions that threaten the national security of Belarus and cause direct damage to its economy and citizens,” the Belarusian Foreign Ministry said.

It is emphasized that under the conditions of the sanctions Belarus cannot fully fulfill its obligations. “We state with deep regret that the forced suspension of the Agreement will have a negative impact on interaction with the European Union in the fight against illegal migration and organized crime,” the message says.

The Permanent Representative of Belarus to the EU has been recalled to Minsk for consultations. Dirk Schuebel was asked to leave for Brussels and bring the position of the Belarusian side “on the unacceptability of pressure and sanctions”.

In response to the ban on entering the EU countries for citizens on the sanctions list, Minsk introduces the same restriction in relation to representatives of European structures and persons who contributed to the imposition of sanctions.

The Belarusian Foreign Ministry is working on other counter measures, including economic ones. At the same time, the foreign ministry of the republic emphasizes that it is ready to develop dialogue and cooperate with the European Union “on the basis of the principles of equality and mutual respect.”

On June 25, sectoral sanctions against Belarus came into force. They affect the trade in petroleum products and potash fertilizers. In particular, it will not be possible to import and move across the EU territory Belarusian petroleum oils, petroleum gas and other hydrocarbons, paraffin wax, peat wax and similar products, petroleum coke and bitumen, asphalt concrete mixtures and other bitumen mixtures based on natural bitumen.
