The results of the presidential election in Belarus were anticipated and Lithuania together with other member-states of the European Union will decide on long-term relations with Belarus by taking into account the final report of election observers from the Organization for Security and Co-operation in Europe (OSCE), says Lithuanian President Dalia Grybauskaitė.

According to the president, the question on whether the EU could lift its sanctions on Minsk is still premature.

"We need to wait some time and then we will see whether the sanctions are going to remain unchanged or not," Grybauskaitė told reporters on Monday.

As expected, the current leader of Belarus, Alexander Lukashenko, secured a landslide victory in Sunday's election. According to reports of the Belarusian Central Election Commission, he received 83.5 percent of the vote.
