Maas sees the need to maintain pressure on Belarus

The European Union must continue to put pressure on the Belarusian leadership to start a dialogue with the opposition. This was announced by German Foreign Minister Heiko Maas on Thursday before a virtual meeting with EU colleagues.

Minsk is “not ready to start an inclusive dialogue” with the opposition, he said. According to him, there was no “constructive response” to the demands of protesters from the Belarusian leadership. “So we will talk about how we can increase pressure [on the authorities],” said the Minister.
