The Foreign Ministry criticizes statements made recently by Belarus President Alexander Lukashenko.

During a memorial service for World War II last week, Lukashenko said the “whole world bows” to the Jews due to the Holocaust, “afraid of saying one wrong word to them.”

The ministry says the comments are “not acceptable,” and have summoned the Belarus envoy to Israel for a conversation.
