“We are satisfied to announce that Lithuania was once again granted the role of the alliance’s representative,” Foreign Minister Linas Linkevicius said. “We will imply all our efforts to strengthen cooperation between NATO and Ukraine.”
Lithuania is currently playing the role of NATO’s representative in Sweden. The Baltic state earlier represented the Western military alliance in ex-Soviet republics of Georgia, Moldova and Belarus.

“We have a clear-cut position: this issue is not on the current agenda,” Klimkin told the daily. “However, the agenda may change”.
