The Ministry noted that the agreement was signed in January 1994, when Latvia had not yet joined the European Union.

“Latvia joined the EU on 1 May 2004 and on 29 March 2004 became a member of NATO. In this regard, Latvia is bound by the legal norms of these international organizations, and the agreement with Belarus does not apply to these norms.”

It is also reported that the Latvian state administration is generally reviewing bilateral relations with Russia and Belarus against the backdrop of a Russian war against Ukraine.
