“Where does Belarus really want to go?” The Belarusian Foreign Ministry answered Sweden’s former FM question.
Carl Bildt, who participated in Tuesday’s meeting of the delegation of the European Council on Foreign Relations with Belarusian MPs, posted a picture on his Twitter:
Where does Belarus really wants to go? Trying to find answers in meetings here in Minsk. Not an easy situation. pic.twitter.com/KgZthaOE0M

The Belarusian Ministry of Foreign Affairs replied on Twitter:

“Certainly sounds like it. Had a most interesting time, anyhow,” the Swedish politician commented.
.@carlbildt remember, it was Belarus to put forward the “integration of integrations” idea and it’s way better than it seems from afar

Europe appreciates Belarus’ efforts to resolve the Ukrainian crisis, Bildt, who is currently Director of the Center for European Reform, stressed on Tuesday.
“We appreciate Belarus’ efforts aimed at supporting Ukraine’s territorial integrity,” he said.
At that, he pointed out that there should not be political prisoners in Belarus.
‘Any number of political prisoners, apart from zero, is unacceptable,’ Carl Bildt said.
