Britain says will keep EU sanctions on Belarus, UK official says

BRUSSELS (Reuters) - Britain will adopt the European Union’s sanctions on Belarus as its own when the EU rules no longer apply at the end of a post-Brexit transition period, a British official said on Monday.

Earlier, foreign minister Dominic Raab said the re-election of President Alexander Lukashenko was “fraudulent” and Britain would work with international partners to sanction those responsible and hold the country’s authorities to account.
