The Czech Prime Minister Andrej Babis on Friday spoke out in favor of repeating the presidential elections held in Belarus last Sunday and granted Alexander Lukashenko a sixth term, which has sparked violent protests over alleged fraud.
“The elections in Belarus must be repeated in such a way that they are transparent and international observers are present,” wrote the Czech president on his Twitter account.
He also said that at the extraordinary meeting of Foreign Ministers held this Friday by videoconference, the Czech Republic will press for “sending a clear signal” by imposing sanctions that “must last so long until free and transparent elections take place “.
The Czech Republic is one of the countries, along with Poland, that has requested that the Belarus crisis be one of the topics to be discussed this Friday. “We can hardly wait, the Belarusians need our help quickly,” he defended himself on the social network.
