Lithuania will oppose the sanctions against Poland imposed by the European Union, stated the Lithuanian Foreign Minister, Linas Linkevičius during the meeting in Vilnius with his Polish colleague, Jacek Czaputowicz, Polish Radio reports.
"We will oppose the sanctions against Poland. This dialogue is very complicated but we believe that the result will be positive. Our neighbors also want to improve relations with the European Union in the context of the rule of law. Ultimatums and strong reactions will not help to solve this issue,” he said.
Linkevičius noted that Poland is a strategic partner of Lithuania and that both states implement many joint projects like Via Baltica, Via Carpatia or Rail Baltica, and face many challenges together.
"It is about security, cooperation within the North Atlantic Alliance. The situation with Lithuania and Poland, like other Baltic States, is very similar. We should work hard to make relevant decisions at various NATO levels and to implement them appropriately,” he added.
