Germany has summoned the Ambassador of Belarus – Jauns.lv

“Today, the Belarusian ambassador was invited to the Federal Foreign Ministry for an urgent conversation in the light of current events,” a source in the German government told AFP.

According to official preliminary results in the presidential election in Belarus, the current head of state, Alexander Lukashenko, won 80.08% of the vote, while opposition candidate Svetlana Tihanovska won 10.09%, but the opposition believes the election results are fake.

Almost 7,000 people have been detained and hundreds injured in Belarus as violent repression by protests by Belarusian security forces against apparent election irregularities and falsification of results. More than 250 victims are being treated in hospitals, and there are also deaths.

German Foreign Minister Heiko Sister said today that recent events in Belarus, including brutal repression against peaceful demonstrators, are unacceptable in 21st-century Europe.

“We will definitely have to talk about the issue of sanctions, an issue that is currently being intensively discussed. I hope that we will find a common solution at tomorrow’s meeting,” the Sister said.

EU foreign ministers will discuss possible sanctions against Belarus on Friday.

Cautious optimism in the recent past that Belarus is moving in the right direction has been unfounded, the Sister said.

The election and subsequent events have destroyed those hopes, he added.
