Visit of the US secretary of state to Belarus: how will the relations of the countries change?

On February 1, US Secretary of State, Mike Pompeo, paid a visit to Minsk. Although relations between Belarus and the United States cannot be called unambiguous, our country is always set for a constructive dialogue. The guest was warmly received, and the best evidence of this is the communication between the Head of State and the first US diplomat.

"The period of coldness in the Belarusian-American relations is over". The day before, the President, answering journalists’ questions, commented on the meeting. Can Pompeo’s visit be considered a breakthrough in relations between the two countries?

What proposals did the Secretary of State make in Minsk and how did the neighbors react to this? The guests of the “ObyektivNo” program answered these questions. The ONT studio welcomed deputies of the House of Representatives Andrei Savinykh and Oleg Gaidukevich, political scientist Aleksandr Shpakovsky and analyst of the Belarusian Institute for Strategic Research Anton Dudaryonok.
