EU condemns Belarus crackdown

From The World Peace Herald:

The European Union Tuesday strongly condemned the recent arrests of opposition leaders in the former Soviet republic of Belarus.

In a statement worked out by EU foreign ministers, and backed by Ukraine, Turkey and other neighboring countries, the bloc said it was concerned at the "growing oppression" of opposition forces, trade unions and independent journalists, and called for the immediate release of political prisoners.
