As the BNS informed the Lithuania Foreign Minister once again confirmed that Lithuania is ready to launch construction works on the underway energy link with Sweden immediately.  Minister Usackas told this during a meeting with the  European Energy Commissioner Andris Piebalgs in Brussels on Feb 23.

As the Lithuanian Foreign Ministry statement writes Mr Usackas stressed that it is of utmost importance to reach an agreement with Latvia on the Baltic-Sweden power link.  The Minister has also invited the European Commission to work hand-in-hand in pursuing a fit solution.

The Lithuanian daily Vilniaus Diena quoted the Lithuanian Prime Minister as saying that resignation of Latvian PM Ivars Guodmans could facilitate negotiations between the two Baltic neighbours since the former Latvian PM was a stanch opponent of the Swedlink being built from Sweden to Lithuania.

    Is this an act for power exchange? Or simply an effort for development?

      Hi there,

      I am not sure if I understood you correctly, but, the SwedLink is a Power electricity grid (1.000 MW), which suppose to connect Sweden (the Scandinavian Nord Pool) and Lithuania and the Baltic on the other side of the Baltic Sea. This is about energy and economics.

      Best regards,
