Formin briefs US congressman on Lithuania's position on Belarus N-plant

Formin briefs US congressman on Lithuania's position on Belarus N-plant

Vilnius, August 14 - Neftegaz.RU.
Foreign Minister Linas Linkevicius underlined Lithuania's concerns over the security of the Astravets Nuclear Power Plant during meeting with US Congressman Mike Quigley, who visited Vilnius before heading to Belarus.

"The US Congressman got acquainted with Lithuania's comprehensive position on serious safety violations and threats posed by the Astravets nuclear power plant under construction in Belarus," the Foreign Ministry said in a press release.

Quigley, a Democratic Representative from Illinois, is a member of the House Committee on Appropriations, the House Permanent Select Committee on Intelligence, and the House of Representatives Sustainable Energy & Environment Coalition.

Lithuania seeks an increased US military presence in the region and has imported liquefied natural gas from America. The governments of both countries criticize the Nord Stream pipeline which supplies Germany with Russian gas, bypassing Ukraine, Poland and the Baltic states.

Following the visit to Vilnius, the US Congressman's delegation will go to Belarus.
