On July 29, the second course of diplomats for the New Belarus graduated

The diplomatic reserve course for the New Belarus was launched at the end of 2020 at the Center for East European Studies at the University of Warsaw with the support of the Polish Ministry of Foreign Affairs and Ambassadors Extraordinary and Plenipotentiary Pavel Latushka and Vladzimir Astapenka, who represent the NAM team.

The main goal of the course is to form a personnel reserve of the New Belarus diplomatic service. The lecturers of the second course were professors of the University of Warsaw and the Diplomatic Academy of the Polish Ministry of Foreign Affairs. Slovenian President Borut Pahor, Moldovan Prime Minister Natalia Gavrilica, US Ambassador to Poland Mark Brzezinski, Polish Foreign Ministry Chief of Diplomatic Service Arkadzi Żagotski, French Foreign Ministry Special Representative Nicolas de Lacoste and many other diplomats, politicians and analysts addressed the students. NAM team members Pavel Latushka and Vladzimir Astapenka also gave lectures.

During the training students studied various disciplines related to diplomatic work: the organization of the diplomatic service, features of work in consulates and embassies, international public law, activities of international organizations (UN, NATO, EU, etc.), diplomatic protocol and traditions, as well as many others. As part of the program students studied foreign languages: Polish, English and French.

Ambassador Pavel Latushka, head of the NAM, spoke at the second-year diploma award ceremony, noting his confidence that thanks to the knowledge the graduates received from experienced diplomats and politicians, they will occupy worthy positions in the Belarusian state administration, including in the diplomatic corps of New Belarus.

In just two years 50 citizens of Belarus have attended the diploma course. The NAM will continue to support training for New Belarus.
