MINSK - Belarus does not recognize the country mandate on Belarus and will not cooperate with the special rapporteur of the UN Human Rights Council Miklos Haraszti, Belarusian Foreign Ministry Spokesman Dmitry Mironchik said on Tuesday.

The spokesman said that the view on Belarus remains unchanged. "We don't recognize the country mandate on Belarus and have no intention to cooperate with him," Mironchik said.

In this regard, Belarusian Foreign Ministry considers Haraszti's visit as private.

Arriving in Minsk on July 3, Haraszti expressed regret that during this visit he was not implemented as a UN special rapporteur on the situation of human rights in Belarus.

Haraszti has been UN Special Rapporteur on the situation of human rights in Belarus since 2012. In a report in last May, Haraszti referred to the sharp deterioration in the human rights situation in Belarus.
