The ministry Internet site said a note had been issued to U.S. charge d'affaires Jonathan Moore along with a list "of American diplomats which have been declared personae non gratae and must leave the territory of Belarus".

Belarus had asked the United States to reduce its staff from 17 to six, the second reduction this year, in connection with extensions of U.S. sanctions.
