Lithuania Foreign Minister Weighs In On Security Of Baltic States, npr.org, April 3, 2018
President Trump met with leaders of the Baltic states in a summit focused on security and trade partnerships. NPR's Mary Louise Kelly speaks with Lithuania's Foreign Minister Linas Linkevicius.
MARY LOUISE KELLY, HOST:
All right, let's circle back to President Trump's comments today on Russia and how they were interpreted by the Baltic leaders at the White House today. I sat down today with Lithuania's foreign minister, Linas Linkevicius, and I asked him how he would view a potential visit by Vladimir Putin to the White House, an invitation the Kremlin disclosed yesterday.
LINAS LINKEVICIUS: Good relations - it's OK, but this would be a prize, and we should understand that sometimes meeting's used as a smokescreen by other side to do nothing.
KELLY: That word smokescreen you used...
LINKEVICIUS: Smokescreen is that you're meeting, so the impression is that everything is OK, business as usual. Parties are talking but, at the same time, no results, no changes.
KELLY: But are you saying that in the context of the U.S.-Russia relationship?
LINKEVICIUS: I'm saying that in all contexts with the relations with that country because that country unfortunately not guided by the values and commitments. And sometimes they are aiming in different goals - not to solve problems but to solve own sort of state interests and sometimes unfortunately at the expense of sovereignty of neighboring countries. That's my point.
