Adamkus making the speech.  Source www.president.ltThe President of Lithuanian made a speech, during a dinner discussion on Russian and its neighbours in Davos.  The speech was made day after a controversial remark by the US Secretary of State Condoleezza Rice  who noted  ‘Ladies and gentlemen, the recent talk about a new Cold War is hyperbolic nonsense.’

Lithuanian President called the EU not to rush signed the new agreements with Russia, since the Kremlin does not comply with the already signed agreements ‘There is no necessity to rush with the new EU-Russia Partnership and Cooperation Agreement, the so called post-PCA, as well. The relationship of the international community with Russia should correspond to the level of Russia‘s readiness to commit to the international community.’

President Adamkus continued that ‘It is necessary to allow Russia define the level of its global responsibility itself and accordingly to define our relations with Russia. If Russia is seeking global responsibility and a global role, there are some benchmarks to be overcome:
– to withdraw troops from Georgia and Moldova, which is foreseen under the Istanbul Agreements;
– to ratify the Energy Charter;
– to follow the promises made when joining the Council of Europe;
– to follow intergovernmental agreements with other countries, including the Baltic States.’

Read all speech also watch and listen to the speech on the YouTube.
