Trump believes that the actions of certain representatives of the country’s leadership pose an “extraordinary and extreme threat to the national security” of the United States.
The United States extended the sanctions against representatives of the Belarusian leadership for a year. On Thursday, June 11, US President Donald Trump signed a decree and sent a notice to the US Congress, the White House press service said.
The document says that “the actions and policies of certain representatives of the Belarusian government and other individuals continue to pose an extraordinary and extreme threat to US national security and foreign policy.”
US law provides for the annual extension with the knowledge of lawmakers of such sanctions.
By the way, today Belarus first received oil from the United States. The Naftan refinery is preparing to engage US oil in refining.
And in early February, Lukashenko and Pompeo met in Minsk.
