Belarus foreign minister's visa ban not on EU summit agenda

Maya Kocijancic, spokesperson of High Representative of the Union for Foreign Affairs and Security Policy Catherine Ashton has informed about it. The European Council is planning to discuss the long-term budget of the EU and "Arab spring" issues, she said.

There will be no changes in the status of the Belarusian Minister of Foreign Affairs blacklisted by the EU, Ashton's spokesperson noted.

Uladzimir Makei was added on the EU black list on January 31, 2011. He was the head of the President's Administration at that moment.
