VILNIUS, September 26 (Itar-Tass) —— The verified course of the United Russia Party with clearly defined personal guidelines of the leaders is the guarantee of political stability in Russia, Kazimiera Prunskiene, the first prime minister of independent Lithuania and leader of the opposition People’s Party, who was present at the congress of United Russia as a guest, told reporters on Monday.
“The verified course of the United Russia Party is the guarantee of political and economic stability, which is particularly important to Lithuania in view of broad economic ties between our countries.” she said.
Prunskiene announced that the Lithuanian People’s Party had signed the agreement on cooperation with United Russia. “We hope that in the framework of inter-party partnership the agreement will help expand the Lithuanian-Russian economic ties brought to a high technological and managerial level over the past decade, to give a fresh impetus to the consolidation of the economy and increase of people’s prosperity,” the ex-premier stressed. She believes there is a need to conduct a dialogue and to cooperate with eastern neighbors, rather than make populist statements that only harm Lithuania.
Prunskiene said a similar agreement was to be signed shortly with the National Democratic Nur Otan Party of Kazakhstan led by president of the republic Nursultan Nazarbayev.
