Belarus detains Lithuanian diplomatic car at border

The Lithuanian Foreign Ministry summoned the Belarusian ambassador due to the detention and the demand to open the car with the diplomatic mail from Vilnius.

Belarus has detained a car with a Lithuanian diplomatic post at the border. Vilnius protested to Minsk. This was announced on Friday, June 4, by the press service of the Lithuanian Foreign Ministry.

“The Ministry of Foreign Affairs expresses its strong protest against the unprecedented detention of a car with a diplomatic post of the Republic of Lithuania on the Lithuanian-Belarusian state border,” the statement says.

It is reported that at the Medininkai border crossing, the Belarusian authorities demanded to rip off diplomatic seals and open the car of the Lithuanian diplomatic mission. And when the Lithuanian diplomatic courier did not agree with this demand, the Belarusian side turned the car around and returned it to the territory of Lithuania.

“The detention of a car with a diplomatic mail on the state border is a serious violation of the Vienna Convention on Diplomatic Relations. Belarus has once again demonstrated that the rules of the civilized world no longer exist for this state. This is a stormy dictatorship in the center of Europe,” Foreign Minister Gabrielius Landsbergis said.

A representative of the Belarusian embassy was urgently summoned to the Foreign Ministry today, where he was handed a note of protest.

Today it also became known that Lithuania will strengthen border security with neighboring Belarus.

Let us remind you that a few days ago, the head of the Lithuanian Foreign Ministry said that Lukashenko made Belarus one big prison for 10 million citizens and urged him to resign.
