The Seimas deputy speaker said this during Friday's conference on the agreement signed between parliamentary parties regarding the Strategic Guidelines for the 2014-2020 Foreign, Security and Defence Policies. The agreement was signed between 7 parliamentary parties on 29 March 2014 marking Lithuania's 10th anniversary in NATO.

According to Kirklias, Latvia and Estonia are indifferent about the Visaginas NPP project, while Poland's investments could liven up the project.

"First of all, this country is a much stronger economy. Secondly, they are eyeing nuclear energy projects for themselves as well. They could take part in Lithuania's project in order to gain experience," the MP said.

Poland withdrew from the Visaginas NPP project back in 2011.
