Minsk demands to reduce the staff of the Estonian embassy to 1 diplomat and 1 technical staff worker

Belarus demanded to reduce the staff of the Estonian embassy from October 1 to one diplomat to perform consular functions and one employee of administrative and technical personnel.

“In the context of the disrespectful attitude to the sovereignty of our country on the part of the Estonian leadership, the Republic of Belarus, in accordance with the Vienna Convention on Diplomatic Relations, does not see the point of a broad diplomatic presence of Estonia on its territory,” the press service of the Belarusian Foreign Ministry said on Friday. “In this regard, the staff of the embassy of this country from October 1, 2022 should be brought to one diplomatic employee to perform consular functions and one employee of administrative and technical personnel.”

It is emphasized that the Belarusian side will similarly reduce its diplomatic presence in Estonia, while the Belarusian ambassador to Estonia is responding to consultations in Minsk.
