EU head of diplomacy urged to work with Lukashenko

The European Union should continue to work with President of Belarus Alexander Lukashenko. This was stated by the EU High Representative for Foreign and Security Policy Josep Borrell.

“We do not recognize him as a legitimate president. As well as we do not recognize Nicholas Maduro. From this point of view, Maduro and Lukashenko are in completely the same situations. We do not accept that they were legally chosen. However, whether we like it or not, they control the government, and we must continue to do business with them despite not recognizing their democratic legitimacy”, – Borrell said.
