NATO foreign and defence ministers meet by videolink on Tuesday, the day after the Western military alliance moved to restrict access to its headquarters for a group of Belarus officials.
The decision follows Minsk's intervention last month forcing a Ryanair flight from Athens to Vilnius to land in Minsk in order to arrest a dissident journalist, which caused outrage in the West.
"We have decided to restrict the access of Belarusian personnel to the NATO headquarters based on our assessment of security measures at the headquarters," NATO Secretary-General Jens Stoltenberg told reporters on Monday.
The move is expected to affect about five officials, who will have their usual delegation badges removed, depriving them of some access to some areas of NATO's headquarters in Brussels. However, they will still be able to enter the complex as visitors.
