Belarus Terms West's Economic Sanctions Unproductive
Pyongyang, March 16 (KCNA) -- A senior Belarusian official said on Tuesday that the country believes the EU economic sanctions against it are not only unacceptable, but also unproductive.

Belarus expresses its regret over the EU economic restrictions, as they will inevitably affect the interests of both Belarusian and European businessmen, the country's Deputy Foreign Minister Alexander Guryanov told local media on Tuesday.

Regarding sanctions as a vulnerable measure, the deputy foreign minister said Belarus hopes that the EU will take into consideration the interests of businesses.
