The initiative by the Tibet Support Group and Tibeto Namai (Tibet House), a non-governmental organization, is aimed at joining the capital's local authority in creating a vision of Vilnius as a city that is open and friendly to people of different nationalities, languages and religions, the Tibet Support Group said.

At the group's initiative, the small public garden in Malunu Street was named after Tibet seven years ago.

Such decorative signs in the respective languages are already in place in the capital's streets named after Jews, Tatars, Russians, Poles, Germans, Icelanders, Latvians, Karaims and Dutch, and in the Washington Square.

Lithuania officially considers the Tibet region in the Himalayas a part of China, but, along with other EU member countries, it calls for peaceful regulation of the relations between the Chinese administration and Tibet's spiritual leader Dalai Lama.
