LUXEMBOURG, October 12. /TASS/. The Council of the European Union made a decision to suspend sanctions against Belarus for the period of four months, France’s Secretary of State for European Affairs Harlem Desir said on Monday.
EU sanctions against Belarus comprise the list of about 150 individuals, including its president Alexander Lukashenko, who are banned from visiting the EU and whose assets in European banks are subjected to freezing. Sanctions also provide for a weapons embargo and a ban on supplying police and dual-purpose equipment to Belarus.
