    Lithuania expresses strong protest and demands an explanation of threatening statements

    On 30 October, the Ministry of Foreign Affairs of Lithuania summoned Yaroslav Khmyl, chargé d'affaires ad interim of Belarus, and handed him a diplomatic note, expressing a strong protest over the threatening remarks made by Pavel Muraveik, First Deputy State Secretary of the Belarusian Security Council, which were published in the "Vecherniy Minsk" newspaper on 24 October this year.

    The Ministry of Foreign Affairs of Lithuania notes that such statements could be interpreted as an open threat to attack Lithuania and are entirely unacceptable. The Ministry of Foreign Affairs of Lithuania has requested that Belarus immediately provide an official explanation of the statement made by the First Deputy State Secretary of the Belarusian Security Council and reminded that Lithuania would take all possible measures to ensure the country's security, sovereignty and territorial integrity.
