Poland responds to Lukashenko's sudden desire to "improve relations"

Aug 13, 2023

The Polish Foreign Ministry has responded to the unexpected statement by self-proclaimed President of Belarus Alexander Lukashenko about his alleged desire to improve relations.

This was stated by Polish Deputy Foreign Minister Pawel Jablonski to RMF FM.


"If Belarus wants to have good relations with Poland, the path to this is very simple. Stop the attacks on our border, release Andrzej Poczobut and other prisoners - more than 1000 people are in prisons in Belarus," said Deputy Minister Yablonski.

According to him, these are decisions made only by people in power in Belarus.

"We do not have and have never had hostile intentions towards Belarus. We do not intend to maintain bad relations with Belarus. On the contrary, we would like them to be as good as possible, but it is the Belarusian authorities who behave the way they do, and they are fully responsible for the fact that we have bad relations. Belarus is simply a country that is hostile to Poland," the Polish deputy foreign minister added.
