Minsk : The Belarusian government has prepared a list of unfriendly countries and the list was published on Friday on Belarus’ National Legal Internet Portal.

The list includes EU member states, the US, the UK, Australia, Canada, Liechtenstein, Norway, New Zealand, Albania, Iceland, North Macedonia, Montenegro and Switzerland, reported Xinhua news agency.

Belarusian media reported that these countries had treated Belarusian legal entities and individuals “rudely”.

The list was prepared in accordance with a presidential decree signed by Belarusian President Alexander Lukashenko in March.

At a conference on security issues on Thursday, Lukashenko said the West was waging an economic war against Belarus.

He reiterated in a meeting with the Pakistani ambassador to Belarus on Friday that Belarus supports peaceful mediation in the conflict between Russia and Ukraine, and that Belarus does not accept any war, conflict and confrontation.
