Lithuania disappointed EU sanctions won't halt French Mistral sales to Russia
Wednesday, July 30, 2014
Lithuania on Tuesday described the European Union's new sanctions as a step forward in efforts to make Russia revise its policies towards Ukraine, but expressed disappointment that they will not prevent France from selling warships to Russia.
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.
