Lukashenko: Belarus wants to send migrants home


Belarus’s president, Alexander Lukashenko, says Belarus is working to return migrants to their home countries. It writes AFP.

The Belarussian leader says according to Reuters that “Belarus is ready to send refugees home to their homeland if they have changed their minds about joining the EU”.

The announcement by the Belarusian president comes at a time when EU foreign ministers are on their way to a foreign ministers’ meeting in Brussels to discuss more sanctions against Belarus.

“It is absolutely crucial that at the Foreign Ministers’ meeting today an agreement is reached to stand united against Belarus, Lukashenko and his hybrid attack on the EU, where he imports people and puts them against the EU’s borders,” Foreign Minister Jeppe Kofod (SocDem) said earlier Monday. .

European leaders accuse Lukashenko’s regime of luring migrants to travel to Belarus. Supposedly by promising them that they can enter the EU that way.

It is the fifth sanctions package against Belarus, which EU foreign ministers are expected to approve on Monday.
