"We condemn today's terrorist attack and stand in solidarity with the people and g overnment of the United Kingdom. We wish strength to all those affected by the London attack. We must remain united and continue making joint counter-terrorism efforts," Foreign Minister Linas Linkevicius said in a press release following an incident on a tube train at Parsons Green earlier on Friday.

The ministry advised citizens of Lithuania who are currently in London to be alert and avoid the proximity of the Parsons Green Station struck by the explosion. Persons visiting the country were recommended to carry their identification and travel documents with them at all times.

Lithuania's Foreign Ministry also advised its citizens to closely follow the recommendations from UK institutions.

British police listed the Friday's explosion in the London metro as a terrorist incident.

The authorities said the metro explosion, which left 18 people injured, had been caused by an improvised explosive device.

The explosion ripped through the train at the Parsons Green station at 8:20 a.m. local time (10:20 a.m. Lithuanian time).
