Eastern Partnership may need Minsk to abstain from recognition of South Ossetia and Abkhazia

2009-02-24 16:29

Approximation of the EU and Byelorussia will be frozen in case Minsk recognizes independency of Abkhazia and South Ossetia, stated Benita Ferrero Waldner, the European Commissioner for External Relations and European Neighbourhood Policy - RIA Novosti.


Let us remind that on April 2nd the Parliament of Byelorussia intends to discuss the issue of independency of South Ossetia and Abkhazia recognition.

Waldner said that the EU position on the issue remains the same: they will never recognize South Ossetia and Abkhazia. She noted that in case Byelorussia recognizes them, it will throw the relations back in time and impede the approximation, the European Commissioner said at the meeting with journalists from Russia, Ukraine, Byelorussia and Moldavia.

She noted that the way of relations between Brussels and Minsk development will be defined by the European Council.

The Eastern Partnership program, which assumes no possibility for the EU membership but implies political and economic approximation with the organization, will be started at the participant countries summit on May 7th in Prague.
