Belgian diplomat expelled from Russia

Deputy Prime Minister and Minister of Foreign Affairs Didier Reynders takes note of the decision of the Russian authorities to expel a Belgian diplomat from Moscow. This decision was notified this morning to the Belgian Embassy in Russia (Moscow). The Minister regrets this decision from Russia. It follows the expulsion of a Russian diplomat by the Belgian government last week. The Belgian diplomat will have to leave Russia within 14 days. The Ministry of Foreign Affairs will make sure that this return takes place in an orderly manner.
