Quotes from the news wire:
My European Council colleagues are very clear that ... the Belarus authorities are using irregular migration to try and put pressure on the European Union, including Lithuania, the European Union is loudly, and in one voice, condemning the pressure (exerted) by using the migrants. I want to express European Union solidarity.
The protests in Belarus are not about geopolitics. This is in the first place a national crisis. It is about the right of the people to freely elect their leadership.
