Meeting of the CIS Council of Foreign Ministers
Limiting the participation of Belarus and Russia in international affairs will jeopardize the prospects for negotiations on the situation in Ukraine. This was stated by Belarusian Foreign Minister Vladimir Makei, participating in a meeting of the Council of Foreign Ministers of the CIS.
“The head of the Belarusian Foreign Ministry emphasized that attempts to limit the participation of Belarus and Russia in international affairs will not only not contribute to the settlement situation in Ukraine, but also puts the prospects for a peaceful negotiation process at additional risk, — said the press service of the department.
He also recalled that Minsk is in favor of a speedy settlement of the conflict through diplomacy.
Makei also discussed with Russian Foreign Minister Sergei Lavrov joint opposition to Western sanctions, and they exchanged views on the situation in the region, the prospects for resolving the conflict in Ukraine and interaction between the two countries in the international arena.
Ukrainian President Volodymyr Zelensky has repeatedly called for Russia to be expelled from the UN Security Council. However, British Permanent Representative to the organization Barbara Woodward said that there were no grounds for suspending Russia's membership.
Russian Permanent Representative to the UN Vasily Nebenzya explained that it was impossible to deprive a country of membership in the Security Council according to the charter. US Ambassador to the UN Linda Thomas-Greenfield confirmed that it is impossible to exclude Moscow.

«Security Council— it is the result of the creation of the UN after World War II. They [Russia] are members of the Security Council. It is a fact. We cannot change it, but we can certainly isolate them in the Security Council, — she said.
According to Thomas-Greenfield, the UN had already isolated Russia when the General Assembly held two votes on resolutions condemning Moscow's actions in Ukraine.
