Belarus tells EU, Polish envoys to leave

Minsk, Feb 29 (IANS/RIA Novosti) Belarus has told the head of the European Union delegation to Belarus and the Polish ambassador to leave the country, the foreign ministry said Tuesday.

EU ambassador Maira Mora and Polish envoy Leszek Szerepka were told to "leave for their capitals for consultations to inform their leadership of Belarus' firm position that pressure and sanctions are unacceptable," said foreign ministry's spokesman Andrei Savinykh.

Belarus has also recalled its ambassadors to the EU and Poland, Andrei Yevdochenko and Viktor Gaisenok, in response to the EU's expanding sanctions against the former Soviet Republic, he said.

EU members Monday agreed to expand a black list of Belarusian officials subjected to restrictive measures, namely police officers and court officials considered responsible for arrests and condemnation of opposition activists.

The sanctions envision an asset freeze and an EU entry ban.

Savinykh said Belarus would also ban entry to the country for those EU officials who contributed to the introduction of the new sanctions.
