UK sends two Belarus diplomats packing in tit-for-tat expulsion

LONDON, Nov 10 (Reuters) - Britain expelled two Belarusian diplomats on Tuesday in response to two of its own diplomats being expelled from Belarus, saying it would not be “cowed” by President Alexander Lukashenko’s government.

“Today, we have expelled 2 Belarusian diplomats in response to the unjustified expulsion of (British) diplomats,” foreign minister Dominic Raab tweeted.

“The UK will not be cowed by the attempts of Lukashenko’s regime to stop us speaking out about the rigged election & the despicable violence against the Belarusian people.” (Reporting by William James; editing by Stephen Addison)
