RIGA - Latvia is keeping its borders with Belarus and Russia closed because of epidemiological, not political reasons, with only some groups of people allowed to cross into Latvia from these countries, Latvian Foreign Minister Edgars Rinkevics (New Unity) said today on Latvian Radio.
The minister said that the categories of people allowed to cross the border include Latvian nationals, as well as residents of Russia, Ukraine and Belarus who have Latvian residence permits, but that they too are required to quarantine for 14 days after arriving in Latvia.
