‘An ambassador should work to mend and unite rather than tear apart and separate’
President of Belarus Alexander Lukashenko praises the contribution of Maira Mora, the Head of the EU Delegation to Belarus
“You’ve done much to promote dialogue with Europe, helping us understand each other better and improving our relations,” noted the President of Belarus. He expressed confidence that, although Ms. Mora leaves Belarus, she will remain a sincere friend of the country. He extended his welcome for her to return at any time. “Wherever you live, you can come at any time to this land, where you will always be a dear guest,” added the President.
Praising the contribution of the EU Delegation Head of Mission to developing relations between Belarus and the EU, Mr. Lukashenko said that her actions had always been sincere. “We know that you’ve done much with sincerity. You’ve always kept silence where you couldn’t do anything, and we’ve always understood this,” noted Mr. Lukashenko. He once again thanked Ms. Mora for her sincerity and wished her success in her new undertakings.
“You’ll have reliable friends in Belarus,” assured the Head of State. The President pointed out that he doesn’t meet every leaving ambassador so this meeting spoke for itself. “Our country honours those committed to improving our relations rather than worsening them, as happens sometimes,” he underlined.
In his opinion, Maira Mora’s work is ‘an example to follow for every ambassador in their host country’. “An ambassador should work to mend and unite rather than tear apart and separate,” added Mr. Lukashenko.
