VILNIUS, January 12 (Itar-Tass) — There are no special problems in Lithuanian-Russian relations and there are prospects for progress, Lithuanian Prime Minister Andrius Kubilius stated in an interview published in the Thursday issue of Lithuanian "Express Week".
The head of government pointed out that he does not see "any special problems" in his country's relations with the Russian Federation, just as any "strained relations in any field". "Of course, one would also like to see prospects for progress, but this, from our point of view, depends primarily on Russia," he said.
The premier's opinion is that Russia is a powerful state, which is living through a complicated stage of development similar to what Britain and France experienced in the middle of the 20th century. "One would like to wish Russia more quickly to go through the formative period, the time of comprehension of itself and of its history, and the formation of a European state," Kubilius pointed out. "One would like to wish this happened as successfully as possible and as less painfully as possible".
