Milinkevich slams Europe for Belarus policy


Talking today in front of the German Parliament Foreign Relations Committee, the leader of the united pro-democracy forces in Belarus, Aliaksandr Milinkevich poured criticism on Europe's policy to restore contacts with the dictatorial regime of Aliaksandr Lukashenka.

Milinkevich said that the political isolation of the regime by Europe did not bring about democratic changes in Belarus and was of no advantage to the Belarusian people.

The Belarus politician stressed that he was and would remain a supporter of a dialogue between the united Europe and Belarus, but on condition of the immediate release of all the political prisoners and the return of the media freedom in Belarus.

After his presentation, Milinkevich met with the aides of the German Chancellor Angela Merkel, according to the press service of Milinkevich.
