"It is a major step. We should take an adequate stance and revise our policies on Belarus," the minister told BNS.

Asked whether the EU should recall or mollify the sanctions on Minsk, Linkevičius replied: "We should have a discussion on the aspect. I do not want to forestall anything, we have to have consultations, however, this is a reason to revise (the sanctions)."
