Lithuanian president: Fragile truce in Ukraine is not peace
Wednesday, December 2, 2015
Lithuanian President Dalia Grybauskaitė met with President Petro Poroshenko of Ukraine on Wednesday. The presidents co-chaired the eight session of the Council of the Presidents of Lithuania and Ukraine held in Vilnius to discuss the security situation in Ukraine, the implementation of the Minsk agreements and key legal and economic reforms in Ukraine, the press service of the Lithuanian presidency said.
If Moscow forced Minsk to export its oil products via Russian railways and ports, that would be economically unviable and dangerous for Belarus, Lithuanian Prime Minister Saulius Skvernelis said on Thursday.
Lithuanian Prime Minister Saulius Skvernelis says that Vilnius and Warsaw are gradually moving to a new stage of better relations and hopes that Lithuanian politicians will solve the highly contentious issue of the spelling of Polish names in Lithuanian personal documents.
The leaked recordings of conversations between Poland's former foreign minister Radoslaw Sikorski and then CEO of oil company Orlen, Jacek Krawiec, about investments in Mažeikiai oil refinery in Lithuania do not reflect the position of the current Polish government, Warsaw said on Wednesday.
