He stressed that Minsk "stands against confrontational rhetoric between the European Union and Russia."

"We are against confrontational rhetoric [between the European Union and Russia] in our region," he went on to say. "Belarus is situated right in the middle, caught between the devil and the deep blue sea, as we have Russia on one side and the EU on the other, who are currently opponents, unfortunately," the Belarusian top diplomat said. "We would like to suggest that our European partners abandon confrontational rhetoric," he noted.
