The Lithuania Tribune spoke to Lithuania’s Ambassador to the US Žygimantas Pavilionis. We asked what message he was planning to deliver to young Lithuanians from all over the world at the second World Lithuanian Youth Summit. The event took place in Prienai region, southern Lithuania, on 10-13 July.
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.
Some 60 percent of the Lithuanian population support the idea of allowing dual citizenship to emigrants of the new generation, while one in five is against the possibility, shows a poll conducted for BNS news agency by the market research company RAIT.
