Belarusian opposition politicians meet with Czech foreign minister in Prague

A group of Belarusian opposition politicians discussed the European Unions possible steps to support Belarusian culture and civil society when they met with Czech Foreign Minister Karel Schwarzenberg in Prague on Thursday.

Earlier this week, the group arrived in the Czech capital city that hosts on May 7 the EUs summit aimed at launching its Eastern Partnership program. It included Ivonka Survilla, the Canadian-based chairwoman of the BNR Rada (government in exile of the Belarusian National Republic); former presidential candidates Alyaksandr Milinkevich and Alyaksandr Kazulin; Zyanon Paznyak, the émigré leader of the Conservative Christian Party.
