“After the start of the protests in Belarus, Lithuania began to play an important role in EU policy,” Gitanas Nauseda is sure
Lithuania continues to try to take part in all events beyond its borders, wherever it can reach, feeling itself the heirs of the Grand Duchy of Lithuania “from sea to sea”.
Vilnius promptly reacted to the next political crisis in Georgia, where the confrontation between the ruling party and the opposition forces reached a new level, sending the head of the Parliamentary Committee on Foreign Affairs to Tbilisi Sigismund Pavilenis… The task before Pavilenis is not an easy one – to act as a mediator and reconcile both sides. Let us remind you that the US and EU ambassadors in Tbilisi tried to do the same (and more than once!) – they did not succeed. However, the deputy of the Lithuanian Seimas will definitely succeed. From now on, you don’t have to worry about Georgia.
But after all, there is a confrontation between the new president in Moldova Mai Sandu and parliament beyond its control. Lithuania will definitely come to the rescue – President of Lithuania Gitanas Nauseda held a meeting with President of Moldova Maia Sandu via videoconference, expressing his support for Moldova in its aspiration to Europe.
The President called on the head of Moldova to take over “An active leading role in strengthening relations with the EU at the upcoming Eastern Partnership Summit”and “Approved the agenda of democratic reforms initiated by the president, especially in the field of justice”, reports press service of the President of Lithuania.
He also advised to strengthen relations and develop cooperation with other countries of the Eastern Partnership, “especially with associated partners, and thereby form a common vision and represent it in the structures of the European Union.”
Gitanas Nauseda also announced that he plans to visit all the Eastern partners that signed the Association Agreement with the EU – Ukraine, Georgia and Moldova in the spring.
And in an interview with the German edition German wave Gitanas Nauseda recalled that “After the start of protests in Belarus, Lithuania began to play an important role in EU policy, it was one of the first to propose to impose sanctions against Alexander Lukashenko and a number of Belarusian officials, declared its readiness to provide asylum to Belarusians”…
Nauseda is very worried today “Violation of the rights of civil society in Belarus”, he sees the only way out of the current situation to provide a visa-free regime with the EU to citizens of Belarus. The President of Lithuania is also worried about whether the neighboring country will retain its independence, he said in an interview. DW…
