After British voters voted to leave the European Union last month, the country's residents from other EU states say they have been subjected to attacks because of their nationality.

Lithuania's Ambassador to the UK Aista Skaisgirytė-Liaukšienė said last week that ten cases of attacks against Lithuanian nationals were under investigation. The embassy has asked Lithuanians to inform about such attacks against them.

Bekešius is also to meet with the UK's former Immigration Secretary James Brokenshire, who was replaced in the post by Robert Goodwill on Saturday.
