Gaidukevich: Belarus remains open for dialogue with all EU states, but we’ll never tolerate pressure

Belarus remains open for dialogue with all countries of the European Union. We are still in dialogue with many politicians and parliamentarians, but we will never tolerate pressure or dictation. The resolution of the European Parliament is another piece of paper that will be in the trash because it has neither legal force nor political implications – as stated by Oleg Gaidukevich, the Deputy Chairman of the Standing Committee on International Affairs of the House of Representatives, commenting on the European Parliament’s adoption of the resolution on the establishment of a tribunal on the crime of aggression against Ukraine.

“We are already used to these regular pieces of paper that they scribble, and which have no legal force, being propaganda documents, and do not affect anything. This document was devoted to the fact that they were going to create a kind of tribunal over Russia and Belarus for allegedly some kind of aggression on our part,” the deputy said.

The parliamentarian stressed that these documents have no legal force, as it is impossible to create any tribunals bypassing the UN Security Council, “The European Parliament has turned into some kind of bureaucratic cabinet, where they scribble only resolutions that no one needs. A tribunal is needed for what they did to Iraq, Libya, what they did to Yugoslavia.”

According to Oleg Gaidukevich, the European Parliament also deserves a tribunal because instead of putting the parties to the negotiating table and achieving peace in Ukraine as soon as possible – as Belarus and our President are talking about – they supply weapons and tanks there, thus unleashing further war.

“Such a tribunal is needed, but, unfortunately, it does not exist. I think that sooner or later the nations who live in Europe will deal with these politicians. Officials who, instead of dealing with their own problems and issues of their own countries, write regular papers addressed to Belarus, receiving a lot of money from their taxpayers for this,” the MP stated.
