UK strongly supports human rights in Belarus - Johnson

British Prime Minister Boris Johnson expressed on Tuesday after meeting with Belarusian opposition politician Svetlana Tikhanovskaya the United Kingdom's "committed to supporting human rights and civil society" in that country.

"We strongly support you [Tikhanovskaya], strongly support Belarus, the Belarusian people, and I think we were among the first to put in sanctions after the hijacking of Roman Protasevich, the flight that was diverted," Johnson said.

Several days ago, Tikhanovskaya met with United States President Joe Biden, who stressed that Washington "stands with the people of Belarus in their quest for democracy and universal human rights."
