Germany backs Lithuania's goal to ensure Belarusian N-plant safety
Thursday, March 2, 2017
Germany's Foreign Minister Sigmar Gabriel says in Vilnius he understands the Lithuanian government's anxiety over the Astravyets Nuclear Power Plant (NPP) under construction in Belarus, expressing support to the goal of ensuring the plant's security via international organizations.
An incident in which a smoke grenade was thrown at the Lithuanian embassy in Kiev could have been a provocation instigated by Russia, Ukrainian Foreign Minister Pavlo Klimkin said in Vilnius on Monday.
The Belarusian airspace was last week violated by a light airplane P46T piloted by a Danish citizen that had taken off from the Vilnius airport, chiefs of the Lithuanian state company Oro Navigacija (Air Navigation) and the Civil Aviation Administration.
