The press secretary at the Belorussian Foreign Ministry, Anatoli Glaz, told TASS news agency that it is not true.

He added that in the EU denunciation there is no genuine willingness to solve the problem, nor logic or common sense, just allegations and unfounded stereotyped threats.

According to the spokesman for the local Foreign Ministry, both senior European officials and Lithuanian authorities destroyed the border interaction system with Belarus, which had existed for many years, with their own hands and systematically.

He said that Lithuania unilaterally suspended contacts with the relevant Belorussian counterparts and publicly severed all ties between law enforcement, provided for by bilateral agreements.

Glaz denounced the groundless allegations by the European High Representative for Common Foreign and Security Policy, Josep Borrell, despite Minsk’s repeated and persistent attempts at holding migration consultations through the few existing channels.

More than 4,000 undocumented immigrants have been arrested on the border between Belarus and Lithuania since early 2021, nearly 50 times more than throughout 2020.
