The Ministry of the Interior said on Wednesday the committee would have to coordinate actions of institutions in charge of the public order and internal security in case threats to internal security in the signatory countries arise.

The interior ministers of Lithuania, Latvia and Estonia reached agreement on the establishment of such a committee in September amid growing concerns over Russia's potential provocations.
