Warsaw has withdrawn its veto on Minsk's participation in the Northern Dimension Partnership for Transport and Logistics (NDPTL), Foreign Minister Radoslaw Sikorski said on Tuesday.

Warsaw has withdrawn its veto on Minsk's participation in the Northern Dimension Partnership for Transport and Logistics (NDPTL), Foreign Minister Radoslaw Sikorski said on Tuesday.

"Today I...have retracted my veto on Belarus' participation in the Northern Dimension Partnership," he said.

This will give Belarus a significant economic boost, he added.

"Belarus can count on some 3 billion euros in the next three years," the Polish minister said.

He stressed, however, that productive work in the NDPTL is only possible if Belarus holds free and fair elections.

The Northern Dimension Partnership for Transport and Logistics includes Germany, Poland, Sweden, Finland, Denmark, Lithuania, Latvia, Estonia, Russia, Belarus and Norway.

It has been described as "an important milestone in strengthening the transport market in an area at the crossroads of West and East, North and South."
