Wednesday, July 16, 2014
Leaders of Lithuania's two ruling parties – Rolandas Paksas of the Order and Justice Party and Valdemar Tomaševski of the Electoral Action of Poles in Lithuania, both members of the European Parliament – spoke out against Lithuania's euro zone accession.
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.
