Saturday, August 30, 2014
Lithuania's President Dalia Grybauskaitė is leaving for Brussels on Saturday to attend the European Union (EU) summit on heads of institutions and the crisis in Ukraine, which has accused Russia of having launched a direct military invasion.
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.
