Belarus - Q&A from the press briefing (2 August 2021)


Q : Is France prepared to issue a visa to Belarusian sprinter Kristina Timanovskaya and allow her to enter the country before a decision regarding political asylum has been taken?

A : Given the situation, it would be an honor for Europe to receive Ms. Timanovskaya as soon as possible and to grant her political asylum.

Beyond that, France intends to resolutely continue, in coordination and in solidarity with the member states of the European Union, to lend its support to the Belarusian population and civil society.
