Two Belarusian diplomats will be expelled from Lithuania, the press service of the Lithuanian Foreign Ministry reports.

 

Today, 28 May 2021, a representative of the Embassy of Belarus was summoned to the Ministry of Foreign Affairs of Lithuania. He was presented with a note in which two embassy employees were declared undesirable in Lithuania for activities compatible with diplomatic status.

Diplomats must leave the country within seven days.

“Two Belarusian intelligence officers working under diplomatic cover have been asked to leave Lithuania. We do not say thank you, and goodbye,” Lithuanian Foreign Minister Gabrielus Landsbergis wrote on Twitter.

According to him, the decision to expel is also an expression of solidarity with Latvia, since earlier Belarus had unreasonably expelled employees of the Latvian embassy.
