News La Commissaire eux Relations Exterieures, Benita Ferrero-Waldner, participera le 18 Mars 2005 a un atelier de coordination du soutien international a la population et societe civile de Bielorussie

Informations disponible uniquement en anglais. The workshop, organised by the Commission and hosted by the Lithuanian government, will be attended by 130 participants, representing EU Member States, the European Commission, European Parliament, other donors, international organisations and NGO’s and Belarus civil society. During her stay in Vilnius, she will also have meetings with Lithuanian President Valdas Adamkus, Prime Minister Algirdas Brazauskas, the speaker of the Parliament Arturas Palauskas, and Foreign Minister Antanas Valionis. The workshop is being held in line with the Council conclusions of 22nd November 2004. Following last autumn’s elections and referendum in Belarus, which were neither free nor fair, the EU committed itself to further supporting civil society and the democratisation process in Belarus. After consultations to identify the needs and possibilities for strengthened support, the Commission is preparing to increase its assistance to Belarus from around €10 million annually to around €12 million each year in 2005 and 2006. Over €5 million will be available in 2005 alone to support civil society in areas such as strengthening NGO capacity, promoting awareness of and respect for human rights and democracy, promoting cultural diversity and the fights against poverty and intolerance. The Commission is issuing invitations to NGOs, media organisations, international organisations and universities to apply for grants to support their work in these areas. Since 1997, the EU has restricted ministerial contact between the EU and Belarus, and suspended aid apart from assistance for projects which support humanitarian causes or democratisation. Last November, the EU introduced a visa ban against the officials directly responsible for the fraudulent polls and those responsible for the subsequent repression of demonstrators.
