"We can confirm that this is a Lithuanian citizen who is suspected of spying on a military object in Sweden," Kęstutis Vaškelevičius, the ministry's spokesman, told BNS.

He said that Swedish police have informed Lithuania about the identity of the detained person, adding that Lithuanian diplomats have not made contact with the man.

According to the Swedish media, the Lithuanian man was detained last week in a military area close to the town of Balsta.

There is no information as to what state he is suspected of spying for.
