THE EUROPEAN PARLIAMENT EXPECTS BELARUSIAN AUTHORITIES TO PROVIDE REGISTRATION TO BCD
The resolution of the European Parliament which is to be taken next week in Strasbourg, detalizes these requirements. We looked through the project of the mentioned resolution: among others there are requirements to register the party "Belarusian Christian Democracy" and solve the situation with the church "New Life".
Apart from the above, we had a meeting with the directive board of the European Peoples' Party, delegation on Belarus affairs, directive boards of the biggest fractions of the European Parliament.
The Co-Chairmen of BCD received invitations to the Congress of the European Peoples' Party in Bonne.
The question of decreasing the costs for visas for Belarusians was also discussed. This important issue is in progress. Now there are negotiations with regard to the suggestion to decrease the costs from 60 to 35 euros. Several meetings conducted earlier finally start to give results: europeans and official authoriuties proceeded to solving this issue.
We also informed the European deputies and the leaders of the European Parliament about the repressions on BCD founder, which are currently taking place in Belarus.
