Romania withdraws ambassador from Belarus

The official Bucharest went on a diplomatic démarche following the other Eastern European countries.

The Romanian ambassador will be recalled from Belarus following the heads of diplomatic missions of several Eastern European countries. This was stated by the Minister of Foreign Affairs of Romania Bogdan Aurescu on Friday, October 9, as the European Truth newspaper reported.

“Belarus should understand that the use of diplomatic pressure on the EU member-states will not help the dialogue and will not bring positive results,” he stressed.
We remind that on October 2 Belarusian authorities recalled ambassadors from Poland and Lithuania and demanded from the embassies of these countries to reduce diplomatic staff in Minsk. Then official Vilnius and Warsaw refused to recall their ambassadors in response.

Later, it became known that Poland and Lithuania withdrew their ambassadors from Belarus. The temporary withdrawal of ambassadors for consultations will serve to reduce tensions and help maintain diplomatic representation at the ambassadorial level, said Foreign Minister Linas Linkevičius.

After that, the withdrawal of their ambassadors from Belarus said the Czech Republic, Slovakia, and Bulgaria.
