"We hereby confirm that the information about this group being exposed is completely true," said a representative of the service, still known by its Soviet-era initials KGB.
"A group conducting espionage for the United States has been uncovered."
State television, tightly controlled in the country of 10 million, had reported last weekend that a spying network made up of 10 Belarussian nationals had been exposed, but gave no details of concrete charges against them.
The U.S. embassy issued a statement saying it had no spies working in Belarus.
