Speaking to journalists in Rukla on Tuesday, Grybauskaitė said that the aim to ensure safety of US residents was understandable, adding that "the measures how it was done probably (are) questionable."

The Lithuanian leader refused to elaborate on the matter, noting that the move was currently pending in US courts.

In January, Trump issued an immigration ban for citizens of Iran, Iraq, Libya, Somalia, Sudan, Syria and Yemen. Parts of the decision were shortly suspended by a US court.
