During a meeting of experts on foreign policy issues, the Lithuanian president’s office has proposed to develop a long-term strategy on Belarus.
“It was agreed that support to Belarusian civil society [and] to democratic processes is very important,” said Asta Skaisgirytė, adviser to Lithuania President Gitanas Nausėda.
The Foreign Policy Coordination Council, consisting of senior Lithuanian officials and members of the civil society, held a meeting on Friday to discuss developing a policy based on a “national consensus”, according to Skaisgirytė.
According to the adviser, the participants of the meeting also discussed the Belarusian nuclear power plant in Astravyets, which Lithuania says was built in breach of international safety standarts.
Lithuania has been seeking an international ban on electricity produced at the nuclear plant. Although reaching an agreement on a joint Baltic boycott, the Lithuanian energy regulator has refused to endorse it. Latvia has now upped energy trade with Russia and Lithuanian officials say that electricity produced at Astravyets now reaches the Baltic grid via Moscow.
