No Lithuanian nationals joining terrorist groups, interior minister says

Lithuania's Interior Minister Saulius Skvernelis says that the country has not yet faced the phenomenon of foreign fighters and has no reports of a single Lithuanian citizen fighting on the side of terrorists. Nevertheless, in his words, Lithuania takes the threat very seriously and understands that well-trained and radical fighters, including citizens of the European Union (EU), returning from zones of armed conflicts may end up in Lithuania.
