Prime minister Janez Janša says Belarus debate shows EU firmly behind its values

By: P.T., STA

Prime Minister Janez Janša hailed the European Council’s decision to step up sanctions against Belarus, saying the debate had shown the EU standing firmly behind its values.

“Us placing human rights and political freedoms of an individual, human, in the centre is the right answer to what has happened,” Janša said in a reference to Belarus forcing the diversion of a passenger flight in order to arrest a dissident journalist.
