Chairman of the International Committee of the House of Representatives Igor Karpenko appealed to his Polish counterpart Andrzej Galician and writing. In it, he explains the position of Belarusian MPs about the situation around the "Polish Card".
Igor Karpenko has told the Radio "Liberty", "I explained to Mr. Galitsky, in connection with which we were considering the request to the Constitutional Court. A well laid out, what we have doubts on this score.
We clearly suggested meeting at the parliamentary level and to discuss those concerns. Maybe they will be removed in the course of this dialogue. But there is no response to the letter. And so saying the Polish side of their concern about the situation with the "Polish Card" in Belarus, I seem to be cynical in the long run.
We have suggested — let's meet, let's discuss. If you do not like a dialogue with us, let us work together to turn the Venice Commission. And discuss it at a civilized level. But on the other side until the silence. So the ball — on their side. "
April 7 Constitutional Court of Belarus has decided that Polish law "On the Pole's Card" is not consistent with international law. Initiated this issue February 23 House of Representatives, which suggested the court consider the Polish law on conformity with generally recognized principles and norms of international law.
