Speaking after the end of the summit, which was held by video conference, Poland’s Mateusz Morawiecki said he supported sanctions against those who took part in a violent crackdown by the authorities on demonstrators.
„However, we do not want Belarusian society to suffer as a result of these sanctions measures,” Morawiecki added.
