The latest developments in North Korea and Syria heighten international tensions and jeopardize world peace, Lithuania's President Dalia Grybauskaitė said at a meeting with China's Parliamentary Speaker Zhang Dejiang in Vilnius on Friday.

"The nuclear and ballistic missile tests conducted by North Korea as well as repeated chemical attacks in Syria are increasing international tension and pose a serious threat to peace in the world. Lithuania and China support the UN Security Council resolution that strongly condemns North Korea's nuclear test-firing and places sanctions on this country," the President's Office said in a press release.

Among the other issues on the meeting's agenda was the development of cooperation between the European Union and China. In Grybauskaitė's words, close dialogue with the world's second largest economy and Europe's second largest trading partner is in the interest of Lithuania. Negotiations on the EU-China investment agreement and prospects for concluding an EU-China free trade agreement were also discussed.
