The Belarusian inspectors will be given access to information on the brigade's structure, its personnel numbers, and types and numbers of its major weaponry and equipment systems.

The team will also visit the brigade's units as part of their evaluation visit conducted within the framework of the 2011 Vienna Document of the Organization for Security and Cooperation in Europe (OSCE) and a bilateral agreement on additional confidence and security-building measures.

This is the second visit by Belarusian inspectors to Lithuania this year. The first one was paid to observe the Thunder Strike exercise in June.

Lithuanian arms control inspectors plan to carry out an inspection of a military unit in the neighboring country under the bilateral agreement later this year.
