President of Lithuania Dalia Grybauskaitė says most of the proposals brought forward by Prime Minister of the United Kingdom David Cameron concerning the European Union's (EU) reform would require negotiations, because complex procedures would have to be initiated to amend the EU's treaties.

According to Grybauskaitė, who is on a working visit to Malta, Lithuania favourably evaluates Cameron's ideas on reducing bureaucratic and regulatory burden on businesses. Grybauskaitė told foreign media prior to the EU-Africa summit that some of the proposals were acceptable as everyone was striving for greater competitiveness.
