Chargé Jenifer Moore on the anniversary of the adoption of Belarus’s Declaration on State Sovereignty

I congratulate the people of Belarus on the anniversary of the adoption of Belarus’ Declaration on State Sovereignty, a watershed moment in the establishment of a sovereign and independent Belarus. For almost three decades, Belarus has enjoyed its own status as an independent state and I can see the growing pride in being Belarusian and interest in the rights and responsibilities of citizenship. I am honored to represent my country at a time when Belarus’ young generation – a generation who has known only a sovereign and independent Belarus – grows into its own and chooses its own path.
