The Lithuanian army would be willing to buy from local producers but needs a good price-quality ratio that would match the market ratio, Chief of Defence of Lithuanian Major General Jonas Vytautas Žukas says.

"If the price-quality ratio is the same as the one on the market, we will always support Lithuanian producers. But, of course, if that's more expensive and the acquisition is more complicated, then, undoubtedly, we always issue international calls for tenders, since we are a member of the EU and NATO," he told journalists on Tuesday.

The chief of defence is attending a parliamentary conference on the Lithuanian defence industry and the needs of the army on Tuesday.

According to Artūras Paulauskas, chairman of the parliamentary Committee on National Security and Defence, five Lithuanian companies are directly working with the army and produce the final product.
