Five members of Lithuania's parliamentary Foreign Affairs Committee have issued a resolution against economic sanctions for Belarus.

The resolution suggests that economic isolation of Belarus would undermine the Belarusian-Lithuanian economic relations, and the situation "would further worsen our country's financial and economic condition, thus raising tensions in the society."

Authored by opposition MPs Justinas Karosas, Vytenis Andriukaitis, Dailis Barakauskas, Michal Mackevič and Andrius Šedžius, the document says that "only joint political instruments of all countries of the European Union (EU) should be applied against manifestations of authoritarianism in Belarus."

The resolution was put to a vote at the committee's meeting on Wednesday, however, five members from ruling groups undermined the quorum.

According to the document, reinforcement of the autocratic regime has been lately observed in Belarus, therefore, the EU is searching for ways to curb the anti-democratic regime in the neighboring country.

EU recently recalled all of its ambassadors from Belarus for consultations after Minsk decided to expel two EU diplomats in response to the bloc's new sanctions over human rights situation.

Over the past few weeks, a few opposition activists were not allowed to leave the country. After public announcement of the restrictions to travel outside Belarus, Emanuelis Zingeris, chairman of the Lithuanian parliament's Foreign Affairs Committee, issued a statement saying that current sanctions against the Belorussian regime were insufficient.
