Sikorski: European solidarity proved to be effective

Poland's Foreign Minister confirmed the return of the country's ambassador to Minsk.

Radoslaw Sikorski confirmed that Ambassador Leszek Sherepka "has already crossed the Polish-Belarusian border," stressing that "European solidarity in this case proved to be effective," according to Radio Liberty.

"But more important, of course, not the comfort of ambassadors or where they are, but the state of relations between the EU and Belarus, which depends on how Belarus treats its own citizens.

Let me remind you of our continued policy of conditionality and the encourage of Belarusian authorities, in the first place, towards the release of political prisoners, which will start a dialogue with the European Union, and later - to hold parliamentary elections according to international standards that would allow close cooperation with the European Union and the European aid to Belarus",
Radoslaw Sikorski said.
