The note urges to explain the violation of the bilateral agreement and to guarantee that such violations will not occur again.
On Friday, October 30, the Ministry of Foreign Affairs of Lithuania sent a note of protest to the Embassy of Belarus because of the decision of official Minsk to close the border crossing. On Thursday afternoon, Belarus unilaterally closed the border with Lithuania without informing Lithuania and violating the procedures under the bilateral agreement,” the Lithuanian Foreign Ministry said.
The note calls to explain this violation of the bilateral agreement and to ensure that such violations are not repeated, the message says.
Recall that earlier Lithuania blocked the allocation of funding for Belarus under the EU program on cross-border cooperation.
