German Chancellor Angela Merkel and authoritarian leader of Belarus Alyaksandr Lukashenko held another telephone conversation on November 17, the second this week, during the migrant crisis on the Belarus-Poland border. Details of the conversation – originally reported by the state-run Belarusian news agency BeITA – have not been released.
In a rare telephone conversation on November 15, Merkel discussed humanitarian aid for thousands of refugees and migrants stranded on the border between Belarus and a European Union country.
The November 15 phone call followed a European Union decision to increase sanctions against Belarus, which is believed to have pushed migrants from the Middle East to Belarus’ border with the EU. Brussels has accused Lukashenko of creating the migrant crisis in retaliation for several rounds of EU sanctions against the country following the August 2020 presidential election. The West considers those elections rigged.
