David CameronAs the BNS announced the Great Britain‘s opposition leader David Cameron says that he did not intend to offend anybody by jokes about “one-legged Lithuanian lesbians.”

“By things that I said last week during private dinner with the British Art Council, I did not intend to offend anybody from Lithuania,” Cameron said in a written reply to Lithuanian Ambassador to Great Britain Vygaudas Usackas.

Cameron said that he held Lithuania and its people in the highest regard. “This country is a staunch ally of the United Kingdom both in NATO and the EU. He had long admired the vigour with which Lithuania has stood up for its independence and its freedom. The Lithuanian community studying and working in his country make a great contribution to the ties between two countries,” he said in the letter.
