Belarus needs national dialogue to overcome the current crisis, High Representative of the EU for Foreign Affairs and Security Policy Josep Borrell said on Sunday, commenting on ongoing protests in that country, APA reports citing TASS.

"Once again, impressive mass demonstrations in Minsk and other cities show determination of Belarusian people to achieve their freedoms, rights and democracy. All this in spite of arrests, intimidation and violence from Belarus authorities. Inclusive national dialogue is needed," he wrote on his Twitter account.

Grass-root rallies in protest against the results of the recent presidential elections in Belarus have been held practically every day for nearly a month. Hundreds take part in rallies on working days and tens of thousands gather for protest actions on weekends.
