The NAM representatives held a meeting with the Latvian Minister of Foreign Affairs

Pavel Latushka and Artsiom Praskalovich met with Latvian Foreign Minister Edgars Rinkevich at the initiative of the Latvian side

During their meeting, the NAM members and Latvian representatives discussed the migration crisis, the hybrid aggression unleashed by the regime against the EU and the "referendum" planned by the illegitimate Lukashenka regime, as well as a number of other issues.

Head of the NAM Pavel Latushka emphasized the importance of developing a collective strategy of the EU and the countries bordering with Belarus — Latvia, Estonia, Lithuania, Poland and Ukraine — as the most vulnerable to aggression by the dictator’s regime.

The Minister informed Pavel Latushka about the firm and united position of the EU member-states in assessing and responding to the situation in Belarus and the impossibility of dialogue with Lukashenka, who carries out a large-scale repression against the Belarusians.

The NAM lawyer Artsiom Praskalovich told about the preparations for Lukashenka’s "referendum" by democratic forces: about the future participants of the election commissions, who are already in contact with the community *Honest people, the support of a single campaign by all new initiatives and activists, as well as how the regime is already trying to counteract.

The Latvian foreign minister was familiarized with the NAM’s proposed approaches to the criminal prosecution of Lukashenka and his accomplices, and expressed an opinion about the importance of working with the regime in this area of criminal liability.

The minister also emphasized his unwavering support for the Belarusian people and the Belarusian democracies in their fight for democracy and human rights.
