The European Union is built on solidarity. Globally, the Union speaks one voice. The demand of the Belarusian authorities that Poland and Lithuania significantly reduce their diplomatic presence in Minsk is regrettable and counterproductive. Lithuania and Poland have been forced to recall their ambassadors for consultations. Such attempts to target individual Member States will not succeed in weakening our unity. All EU Member States call on the Belarusian authorities to end violence and repression, release all detained peaceful protesters and political prisoners, respect media freedom and civil society, and start an inclusive national dialogue with a view to ensure an sovereign, independent, democratic and prosperous future of Belarus.
