Valdas Kaminskas, public relations adviser to Interior Minister Dailis Alfonsas Barakauskas, told BNS the decision was made at a meeting held at the State Border Guard Service on Monday morning.

"In the light of the actual situation over the weekend and absence of any incidents, a decision was made to reduce border protection to the regular regime," Kaminskas said.

Lithuania had stepped up the border protection on Friday following abduction of a security police officer in Estonia.
