Lithuanian protocol asked the Estonians to help organise Presidential funeral
The Lithuania’s protocol is in touch with the Estonian protocol to pick their brains on organising the Presidential funeral, the editor of magazine Kelias, Mr Rytas Staselis wrote in his blog on 7 February. It appears that the Lithuanian protocol is getting ready for death of one of the most prominent Lithuania’s politicians Algirdas Mykolas Brazauskas, who has been in intensive care for almost a month.
According to the editor he learned about this news from a businessman. Mr Staselis also called to his friends in Estonia to confirm this and got a positive response. According to Mr Staselis Tallinn received an official request from Vilnius and is still undecided how to react in the case of need. The editor makes an assumption that the Estonian protocol would send a team to help organise the funeral in Lithuania. Estonia’s President Lennart Meri is the first Baltic President, who passed away in 14 March 2006.
