The governments of Latvia and Lithuania have differing opinions on the topic of building relations with Russia.
Latvian President Andris Berzins publicly announced that he absolutely disagrees with his Lithuanian counterpart Dalia Grybauskaite, who has repeatedly stated that Russia can be seen as the 'aggressor country'.
In an interview with TV LTV7, Berzins said that he did not agree with the stance of Grybauskaite, and called it unacceptable.
In addition, Andris Berzins mentioned that his responsibility as the head of state is to maintain stability in Latvia. The president also said that he always observes the principle: “Do not look for enemies, look for a solution,” Latvian media reports.
