The commotion about Lithuanian Agriculture Minister Virginija Baltraitienė's dinner and hunting party with her Latvian counterpart should not affect the relations between the two neighbouring states, says Lithuania's Parliamentary Speaker Loreta Graužinienė of the Labour Party.

"I believe this should not have an impact on bilateral ties, things happen, everything will be cleared up. I believe the ministers will meet in a number of formats, and when positions have to be defended in the European Union, politicians of both Latvia and Estonia harmonize their stances," Graužinienė told Žinių Radijas on Wednesday.

In her words, Latvian politicians understand that the ado in Lithuania in part has to do with the upcoming general elections.

On Monday, Baltraitienė made a public apology to her Latvian counterpart, Janis Duklavs, over the situation surrounding the recent dinner and hunt in Lithuania.
