Sec. of State Mike Pompeo: ‘There will be a smooth transition to a second Trump administration’
So far, according to Pompeo, Washington has not worked out the appropriate measures, but in search of an answer intends to interact with partners in the EU
The United States wants a good end to the events in Belarus for the people of this country and will act in accordance with this position, US Secretary of State Mike Pompeo said in an interview with Radio Free Europe / Radio Liberty on Wednesday in Prague..
So far, according to Pompeo, Washington has not worked out the appropriate measures, but in search of an answer intends to interact with partners in the EU.
The Secretary of State stressed that the post-election violence in Belarus, which the United States observed, does not correspond to how the authorities should act in relation to participants in peaceful protests. Earlier, the administration of American President Donald Trump called on Minsk to refrain from violence against peaceful protesters. And Pompeo condemned the course of the elections in Belarus, in which, according to official data, Alexander Lukashenko won for the sixth time in a row.
The Belarusian opposition calls the voting results falsified and for several days has been going to spontaneous protests demanding a recount and Lukashenka’s resignation.
Speaking about further relations between Washington and Minsk, including the prospects for the supply of American oil to Belarus, Mike Pompeo said that the United States should work in view of its extreme concern about the events in Belarus and the fact that Washington was waiting for freer and more fair elections and is now deeply disappointed with this election campaign..
