Lithuanian deputy parliament speaker: Italian EU Council presidency will affect EU's foreign policy

"The Italian Presidency of the Council of the European Union (EU) should make an impact on the EU's foreign policy. It is the search for a new momentum in EU foreign policy that is one of the key priorities of the Italian Presidency. I am sure that this task will not pose a problem to Italy as one of the founding members of the Community that presides over the Council of the EU for the twelfth time," said Gediminas Kirkilas, Deputy Speaker of the Seimas and Chair of the Committee on European Affairs, according to the press service of the Seimas.
