MINSK, 15 September (BelTA) – Belarus has always treated the resolutions of the UN Security Council most seriously and has never violated the existing sanctions; the UN Secretariat knows it full well. This statement was made by Andrei Savinykh, Spokesman for the Foreign Ministry of Belarus, as he commented on the allegations in some Internet media that Belarus acted as an intermediary to supply Iran with equipment for nuclear industry and ballistic missiles in violation of the UN sanctions against Iran.
At the beginning of September, Belarus provided exhaustive information on the issue to a visiting group of UN experts, Andrei Savinykh informed. They confirmed that Belarus fulfilled all international commitments. “Thus, all the publications claiming the opposite should be treated as a falsification. They have nothing to do with reality. It is another awkward attempt of our ill-wishers to cast a shadow on Belarus’ reputation,” the Foreign Ministry representative said.
