The Belarusian National Platform calls for more coordination between the Eastern Partnership and the European Dialogue on Modernisation
The Belarusian National Platform adopted a resolution during its annual national Conference on 1 June 2013 in Minsk inviting the EU to better coordinate the initiatives of Eastern Partnership and European Dialogue on Modernisation.
The NP furthermore stated the lack of progress concerning human rights in Belarus and welcomed the efforts by the EU to start a new stage of dialogue with Belarus if all political prisoners are released and if considerable improvements concerning human rights are visible. Furthermore the Platform expressed its deep concern with the risk accompanying the possible establishment of a separate format of relations between the EU and the Belarusian authorities without participation of civil society.
