Lithuanian MFA statement regarding poisoning case in the United Kingdom

Created: 2018.03.13 / Updated: 2018.03.14 11:50

The Lithuanian Foreign Ministry expresses strong solidarity with the United Kingdom following an audacious criminal act – the poisoning of a former military intelligence agent Sergei Skripal and his daughter.

There is never a justification for this type of attack – the attempted murder of private citizens on the soil of a sovereign nation.

The Lithuanian MFA stresses that the use of a military-grade nerve agent within NATO territory represents an exceptional case, making it essential to identify the perpetrators and bring them to justice immediately.

We call for a joint NATO and EU response.
