NEWS AND STATEMENTS
 
15/09/2014  Lithuania's statement at the UN Security Council briefing on Iran sanctions

Madam President,

At the outset, let me thank Ambassador Gary Quinlan for his 90-day briefing on the work of the 1737 Security Council Committee. I would also like to commend the Panel of Experts for their meticulous work. Lithuania has long called for a comprehensive, negotiated and long-term solution, which would strengthen international confidence in the exclusively peaceful nature of Iran’s nuclear programme, in full compliance with its international obligations and relevant UN Security Council resolutions.

Lithuania notes the progress achieved so far in the implementation of the 24 November 2013 Joint Plan of Action by the E3+3 and Iran. We reiterate our call on Iran to demonstrate transparency, determination and political will and to engage constructively with the E3+3 in resolving all outstanding issues, including those related to the possible undisclosed military dimension to Iran’s nuclear programme.

15/09/2014  STATEMENT ON MURDER OF BRITISH CITIZEN

The Ministry of Foreign Affairs of Lithuania strongly condemns the murder of a British aid worker, David Haines, who was abducted in Syria in 2013, and offers deepest sympathies to his family, loved ones and to all the people of the United Kingdom.

This brutal and heinous crime committed by the terrorist group ISIS, as well as the recently committed despicable crimes against the US journalists cannot break the resolve of international community nor the people of good will to fight terrorism. Those alleged to be responsible for these crimes must be brought to justice.

The Foreign Ministry of Lithuania once again pays tribute to those who risk their lives in conflict zones to perform their peaceful professional duties.

14/09/2014  STATEMENT ON THE "ELECTIONS" IN CRIMEA

Responding to the reports about the “elections” held in Ukraine's Autonomous Republic of Crimea on 14 September, the Lithuanian Foreign Ministry underlines that Lithuania supports Ukraine’s sovereignty, independence and the territorial integrity and considers organising such “elections” in Crimea to be yet another illegal action of the occupation authorities. We do not recognise the constitutional nor legal grounds on the basis of which these “elections” were organised. At the same time we express our concern about the violations of human rights, which have become more frequent in the illegally annexed Ukraine's Autonomous Republic of Crimea.

13/09/2014  STATEMENT ON ILLEGAL DETENTION OF THE KIDNAPPED ESTONIAN OFFICIAL ESTON KOHVER IN RUSSIA

The Foreign Ministry of Lithuania urges the Russian Federation to release immediately the official Eston Kohver detained in the territory of Estonia on 5 September and provide him with the possibility to safely return to his Motherland. We consider accusations of spying made against Eston Kohver politically motivated. We express solidarity with our ally Estonia, Kohver’s family members and all the people of Estonia.
