Lithuania will have to improve its reputation in Rail Baltica project
Wednesday, December 21, 2016
Lithuania will have to improve its reputation that has been harmed by the country's inability to find common ground with its partners in Rail Baltica and to prove that it is not holding back the European standard-gauge railway project, Rokas Masiulis, the new transport minister, said.
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.
