Lithuanian Parliament speaker Irena Degutiene called the Nordic and Baltic countries to jointly discuss urgent security issues, such as the sale of French Mistral warships to Russia, on high level and on the regular bases.

‘As many Nordic and Baltic countries as possible should be included in a discussion about the issue of sale of Mistral ships.  Discussions could take place among the Committees on Foreign Affairs also including the National Security and Defence Committees,’ Degutiene said in a press release.

The Swedish Speaker of the Parliament Per Westerberg expressed his support for this idea.  According to the press release during his visit to Vilnius to commemorate 13 January events Westerberg has also suggested that such meetings should take place in Brussels on regular bases twice a year.  Other important issues such as energy sourcing and strengthening of energy independence should be on agenda of those meetings.
