|Alexandra Sergeyeva. Lithuanian Foreign Minister "clarified" Angela Merkel
Minister of Foreign Affairs of Lithuania Linas Linkevičius decided to "clarify" the formulated by German Chancellor Angela Merkel willingness to find a solution to the Ukrainian crisis, which would not harm Russia.
"In my opinion, it is equally important not to harm the Ukraine, because here the forces are unequal, as the military forces, as economic," - said the minister in an interview with the radio station Žinių radijas on 26 August.
According to him, finding a solution to the Ukrainian conflict is also testing the reliability of partnership with the West.
"There are a whole lot of questions, and I consider, of course, it is necessary to look for a solution without sacrificing the sovereignty, territorial integrity or independence in any case," - said Linas Linkevičius.
German Chancellor Angela Merkel told the German public television channel ARD on Sunday 24 August, that it is necessary to find a solution of the Ukrainian crisis, which will not harm Russia, and which shall be chosen by the Ukrainian residents themselves, reported the "Lithuanian Courier".
