Latvia's reluctance to block Belarus' N-plant may be due to economic reasons - MP
Tuesday, February 21, 2017
Lithuanian Prime Minister Saulius Skvernelis says that economic reasons could be behind Latvia's apparent reluctance to take a tougher stance toward the Astravyets nuclear power plant that Belarus is building close to its border with Lithuania.
After Latvia's foreign minister restated the country's plans not to block electricity generated by the Astravyets nuclear power plant (NPP), Lithuania's Foreign Minister Linas Linkevičius does not rule out the move is due to economic reasons.
Today, the Baltic Focus events dedicated to Lithuania, Latvia and Estonia are launching within the programme of the industry days of the International Odessa Film Festival, the Lithuanian Film Centre wrote in a press release.
Lithuania's Foreign Minister Linas Linkevičius says he was assured by his Swedish colleague that the Swedish MP's initiative to block criticism for Belarus at the Parliamentary Assembly of the Organization for Security and Cooperation in Europe (OSCE) did not reflect the entire country's position.
