Belarus Expulsion of Polish Diplomat (Taken Question)

Question:   It has been reported that Belarus officials expelled a Polish diplomat? What is the US reaction?

Answer:   We would refer you to the Polish government for information on the details of this case. We would note that the Belarusian authorities’ accusations against this Polish diplomat appear to fit a pattern of false claims that the United States and other Western countries are attempting to destabilize Belarus. The United States encourages and promotes democracy in Belarus and stands behind the Belarusian people in their quest for freedom.
