Josep Borrell: EU does not recognize Lukashenko as legitimate president of Belarus

Josep Borrell, European Union’s high representative for foreign affairs, says the European Union does not recognize Alexander Lukashenko as the president of Belarus.

Borell told the European Parliament the August 9 election that returned the veteran strongman to power was fraudulent.

“Today we will discuss how to better support the people of Belarus and how we will review our relations with the government of Belarus, given that we do not recognize Lukashenko as a legitimate president,” Borrell said.
