Belarus calls U.S. sanctions obsolete stereotypeStaff Writer | June 15, 2017
The Belarusian Foreign Ministry said the new U.S. administration's policy toward Belarus maintains an obsolete biased stereotype.
Tensions The sanctions against Lukashenko
Earlier, U.S. President Donald Trump extended for another year the sanctions against Lukashenko, several Belarusian officials and their families.
The sanctions were introduced by former U.S. President George W. Bush to denounce presidential elections in Belarus that Washington called undemocratic.
Vanshina said Washington's allegation that Belarus poses a threat to it is absolutely unacceptable.
The foreign ministry official said Belarus is committed to continuing constructive dialogues with the United States and to mutually beneficial cooperation, in the belief that such bilateral cooperation will contribute to positive changes in the U.S. foreign policy. ■
