VILNIUS, November 29, 18:05 /ITAR-TASS/. The European Union must draw a lesson from the failure of talks on the association agreement with Ukraine and revise the tactics of its dialogue with Russia, Lithuanian Foreign Minister Linas Linkevicius said after the Eastern Partnership summit in Vilnius.
“It is necessary to analyze in detail the situation not only with the Eastern Partnership program, but also with EU’s tactics in a dialogue with Russia,” said the foreign minister of Lithuania, which currently holds the rotating presidency of the EU Council.
According to the diplomat, positions of the EU member countries were of special importance. “Nobody can automatically guarantee success in the signing of the association agreement with Georgia and Moldova,” the foreign minister said.
According to Linkevicius, it would be naive to hope that the plan to sign these documents next autumn would be accomplished with little effort of both partners and the EU. “The pressure will be definitely growing,” he believes.
