Moscow stands against external interference in Belarus' constitutional reform - Peskov

MOSCOW. Sept 14 (Interfax) - Moscow is convinced that neither Russia, nor other European countries should meddle in the constitutional reform in Belarus, Russian presidential press secretary Dmitry Peskov told reporters on Monday.

"[Russian] President [Vladimir] Putin said he supports this process. However, no one should interfere in it at all - neither Moscow, nor other European capitals," Peskov said.

"[Belarusian] President [Alexander] Lukashenko has come out with this initiative; our Belarusian colleagues have spoken of that within the framework of [the Organization for Security and Co-operation in Europe] the OSCE [...]. However, it is yet not we who should speak about some details, it is an internal Belarusian process," Peskov said, when asked as to whether Moscow is aware of any details of the reform.
