Oleg Kondratyuk, executive director of the Belarusian Basketball Federation:
The FIBA ​​decision came thanks to significant work and inspection visits by the representatives of the International Federation.

The tournament is scheduled to be held from June 30 to July 8, 2018. The Belarusian basketball players will play in the final stage without having to undergo qualification.
