VILNIUS, December 23. /ITAR-TASS/. Lithuanian-Russian relations need to be developed in a more dynamic way, so “it would be reasonable to activate a positive agenda” to this end, that is to discuss and to resolve issues that do not constitute major differences between the two countries, Lithuanian Foreign Minister Linas Linkevicius told the national radio on Monday.
Linkevicius said it was necessary to intensify bilateral relations between Vilnius and Moscow, for which he had his own formula.
“We could solve the issues on the positive agenda first, moving then on to some more problem items,” he said, adding that it would be impossible to achieve anything, if only the negative aspects continued to be emphasized.
“We should not concentrate on the divergence of opinion, which we never forget, of course,” Linkevicius stressed. “A dialogue is required anyway. There is just no other way.
