The President of Belarus has met with a delegation of the EU Political and Security Committee. According to Alexander Lukashenko, Belarus is increasingly seen as a pole of stability in the region. The Belarusian leader has suggested launching a peacekeeping "Minsk process" to normalise relations between East and West by analogy with the Helsinki process.
