Regarding the News Agency ITAR-TASS publication


In the 30 May report by the News Agency ITAR-TASS there has been wrongly interpreted a statement made by the Lithuanian Minister of Defence.

The issue with regard to Lithuania's participation in the US Ballistic Missile Defence System is not under consideration; nonetheless, the very system and implementation of its elements in Europe are important both to Lithuania and to the entire international community.

As a member of NATO, Lithuania takes part in the Alliance's as well as NATO-Russia Council's discussions on the Ballistic Missile Defence System.

Lithuania holds to the principle that security in the Euro-Atlantic area is indivisible. Therefore, we fully believe the elements of the ballistic missile defence in the Czech Republic and Poland, as well as the eventual system of NATO  missile defence will strengthen security of Lithuania, Europe as well as of Russia.
