PARIS – France’s foreign minister said on Sunday that Russia had to exert pressure on Belarus to end the migrant crisis.

“Russia must exert pressure on Belarus,” Jean-Yves Le Drian told LCI television, adding that President Vladimir Putin needed to come good on a promise to pressure Belarus during a phone call last week with his French counterpart Emmanuel Macron.
