"Lithuania will seek to supply itself with amber. So far, we have imported it from the amber-rich Russian region of Kaliningrad, but due to the political situation and worsened trade ties, trade in amber has halted completely. We hope to resolve this issue on our own," Environment Minister Kęstutis Trečiokas was quoted as saying in a statement.

Amber deposits have not been properly explored in Lithuania. Figures from the ministry show that a survey in 1992-1994 confirmed possibilities to extract 112 tons of amber in the Curonian Lagoon.
