U.S. will judge Belarusian elections by their manner

MINSK. Aug 6 (Interfax) - The U.S. embassy will keenly follow the registration of candidates to the House of Representatives of the Belarusian National Assembly during the next two weeks, deputy head of the U.S. mission Jonathan Moore has announced at a press conference.

In 10-14 days it will become clear who is registered and that will be very important, he said.

The United States is in a state of observance and expectation with regard to the upcoming parliamentary elections in Belarus, he said.

Moore said that the improvement of the situation in Belarus is essential for the USA which is on the threshold of presidential elections itself. The situation in Belarus has indirectly become a subject of debate during the U.S. election campaign, he added.

He also said that the approaches of the United States and the Europe Union to the elections in Belarus coincide. He noted that a high- ranking delegation from Brussels visited Minsk. During the visit it said that the elections would be judged by their course, not outcome, he said.
