Lukashenko Says Belarus MPs to Consider Abkhaz, S.Ossetia Recognition
Civil Georgia, Tbilisi / 16 Sep.'09 / 00:54

President of Belarus, Alexander Lukashenko, said on September 15 his country’s parliament would consider the issue of recognizing Abkhazia and South Ossetia.

“This issue will be discussed at [the parliamentary] session… My opinion is shaped based on the opinion of people. So decision will be made after the Parliament expresses its position and based on the people’s opinion,” the Russian news agencies reported quoting Lukashenko, who is paying visit to Lithuania.

He also said that any foreign pressure on the matter, “even from our brotherly country” – an apparent reference to Russia – would be unacceptable for Minsk.

Meanwhile, RIA Novosti news agency reported quoting unnamed Belarus lawmaker, that no date was yet set for the parliamentary discussion of the matter. He said the Parliament planned to launch plenary session from October 2.

“The issue of recognition of independence of those two republics [Abkhazia and South Ossetia] is a very delicate and acute matter,” the Belarus lawmaker said.
