VILNIUS, September 13 (Itar-Tass) -- It would be very wrong to interpret all groups within the Belarussian opposition as democratic, Lithuanian President Dalia Grybauskaite said on the national radio in an interview on Tuesday.
"Talking about entire Belarusian opposition as democratic would be very wrong. It is all very different," the Lithuanian leader said. According to her, in the speeches of President Alexander Lukashenko's opponents one seldom hears that their priority goal is independent Belarus.
"One can hear almost no things like that," said Grybauskaite. "Most often we hear that the Opposition needs more money and that Russia in principle is a friend of Belarus."
According to the president, this makes Vilnius anxious.
"The national interest of Lithuania is to have an independent neighbor, an independent state on its border," she said.
