Belarus will try to solve the migrants problem by the end of 2021, Russia's RIA news agency quoted Belarusian leader Alexander Lukashenko as saying on Tuesday.

Belarus has been in a row with the European Union over migrants camped at the Belarusian-Polish border.

Belarus has already begun allowing some migrants to return to their countries of origin. Last week, almost 400 people flew to Iraq. On Thursday and Friday, over 600  returned to Erbil, the capital of Iraq’s autonomous province Kurdistan, and another flight is scheduled for Saturday.

At the same time, Lukashenko made it clear that if someone wants to take their chances and cross the border into the EU, his government won’t stop them. “If you want to go west, we won’t choke, grab and beat you. It is your will. If you go through, go ahead. That’s simple,” he said.


He’s also pushing for the EU to backtrack on sanctions.

According to Belarusian officials, around 2,000 migrants, mainly from the Middle East, have been camped in a warehouse turned into a temporary shelter near the border with Poland.
