The British Embassy Minsk is the official representation of the United Kingdom of Great Britain and Northern Ireland in Belarus.

We work on a wide range of issues with the Belarusian government and non-governmental organisations to support political, social and economic reforms, improve the situation in the areas of human rights and the rule of law, and encourage Belarus’ full participation as a member of Eastern Partnership. We work with businesses in Belarus and the UK to build trade links for mutual growth.
