The fundamentals of this position are -- respect of Lithuanian sovereignty, effective control of borders, equality of rights among Russian and Lithuanian citizens.

The Lithuanian Foreign Ministry points out that the new decisions should not become an obstacle for Lithuania's accession to Schengen Treaty territorial space, and they also should not impose any additional financial obligations on the country.

The statement points out that Lithuania will respect only those agreements between Russia and the EU that would not violate the stated principles.
