Lithuania's recognition of Tikhanovskaya violates international law - Belarus Parliament

Minsk, Sep 15 (Sputnik) - The presidium of the upper house of the Belarusian parliament condemned on Tuesday Lithuanian lawmakers' move to recognize ex-Belarusian presidential candidate Svetlana Tikhanovskaya as the "elected leader", saying that this was beyond common sense and also violated the international law.
In its resolution, the Lithuanian parliament called on the global community to support Tikhanovskaya and the Belarusian opposition coordination council. The authors of the document also proposed qualifying Belarusian President Alexander Lukashenko's steps conducted while signing any new deals as "annexation of the country."
"Lithuanian lawmakers' attempt to appoint 'the leader of the Belarusian people' is on the wrong side of common sense. These provocative inadmissible steps violate the international law, the rules of communication between countries and the accepted parliamentary practice," the upper chamber said in a comment, seen by Sputnik.
