"Three people were relocated from Turkey to Lithuania on July 19, 2017. Lithuania has to date relocated 400 people from Italy, Greece and Turkey," it said in a press release.

Lithuania two years ago pledged to take in a total of 1,105 refugees from such countries as Syria, Iraq or Eritrea under the EU program.
