Dutch election shows Europe can withstand far-right populism - analysts
Thursday, March 16, 2017
Moderate political parties' success in the Dutch parliamentary election shows that Europe may be able to withstand rising far-right populism, but it is too early to say that tensions have subsided, Lithuanian political analysts said on Thursday.
The proposal by UK Prime Minister Theresa May for European Union (EU) citizens present in the country should ease tensions among the Lithuanians living in great Britain, says Daiva Asanavičiūtė, the leader of the local Lithuanian community.
The European Union (EU) should consolidate in the field of defense and countries of the euro area should also deepen their cooperation, Spain's Foreign Minister Alfonso Dastis said in Vilnius on Wednesday.
