The Belarusian side, the diplomat stressed, says publicly and at all levels that it is very seriously afraid of the aggressive actions of the Polish leadership. They “finance extremists, prepare combat squads against the Belarusian population, carry out active militarization. These are obvious and well-known facts.” At the same time, their actions are sometimes “fanatic, do not differ in logic and rationality, and therefore are not always predictable,” Glaz noted.
In this regard, he recalled that the Polish side had closed the checkpoints on the border with the Republic of Belarus to the detriment of its own population and businesses. And recently, the press officer of the Ministry of Foreign Affairs specified, Warsaw “took the decision not to respect the provisions of the Treaty on Conventional Armed Forces in Europe (CFE) with regard to our country”, wanting hide information about the armed forces of its closest neighbor even more.
But that document, Glaz said, has been rated by the UN General Assembly as “the cornerstone of European security.” Now let’s see, he added, “how Europe’s capitals will react loudly to the clearly destructive move of the Polish government”.
It is also interesting, the Belarusian foreign ministry said, to hear NATO’s views on the correlation between such a position and the alliance’s consistently stated commitment to arms control and transparency in the military field. Clearly, Poland needs to reconsider its decision and return to the full and conscientious implementation of the CFE Treaty. “We are always ready for a constructive and mutually respectful dialogue,” assured Minsk.
