Norway's Ambassador Leif Arne Ulland: Lithuanians in Norway are valued as skilled workers

There are some 50,000 Lithuanians living in Norway. While the media is quick to cover crimes and criminal gang activity, giving Lithuanian expatriates a bad name in both their adopted and home countries, Ambassador of Norway Leif Arne Ulland says most of them have managed to integrate quite well and are contributing to the country's welfare.

Lithuania's Foreign Minister Linas Linkevičius has proposed considering fewer requirements for the referendum on dual citizenship.

Lithuania could legalise dual citizenship by scrapping 1990 dividing line - Seimas' speaker

Benefits of Lithuanian citizenship from the South African Litvak perspective (1)

“South Africa is more Litvak than Lithuania itself,” Markas Zingeris, the Lithuanian playwright and novelist once remarked. And, as one of very few members of Lithuania’s Jewish community to remain in the country, he would know.

Viktoras Pranckietis, the speaker of the Seimas, sees amendments to the Law on Citizenship as the only possible way of broadening dual citizenship and expects that the Constitutional Court will approve of the move.
