Vladimir Makei is the Minister of Foreign Affairs of the Republic of Belarus. In an interview with Euronews reporter Valérie Gauriat, he gives the Belarusian government’s assessment of the human rights situation in the country, in the light of the new balance Belarus wants to achieve in its relations with both Russia and the European Union.
Belarus has always been known as a hospitable and welcoming neighbor, yet now the country is taking it one step further by making a brave decision to open its doors to the whole wide world. Citizens of 80 states can now fly in for a long weekend and discover one of Europe’s least visited countries visa-free.
