EU decides what to do with Belarus

In Brussels, at 16:00, Minsk time began session of the European Council on Foreign Policy. Belarusian issue on the agenda was the second point — after Tunisia, but at the last minute the main theme of the session was the events in Egypt.

Expected Foreign ministers ministers of the EU will approve the decision on sanctions against Belarusian authorities for non-democratic presidential election and the deployment of a wave of repression after them. United States intend to introduce their own additional sanctions against the official Minsk with the EU at the same time.

Thus The U.S. and EU are going to come up with a unified international message to the Belarusian authorities.

The session takes place behind closed doors. As an outcome of 19:30 (Minsk time) planned press conference, however, due to changes in the agenda is expected to take place later.
