Minsk expels French ambassador, recalls envoy

Belarus has recalled its ambassador to France, the country's Foreign Ministry stated in a statement on Monday.

Earlier during the day, the French ambassador to Belarus, Nicolas de Lacoste, was requested to leave the country.

While Paris failed to specify the reason over which its envoy to Minsk was expelled, Belarusian media hinted that the decision came due to the fact that De Lacoste never presented his credentials to President Alexander Lukashenko.
