From wire reports, VILNIUS

Lithuania will consider whether or not to send troops to the ongoing conflict in the Central African Republic. 

Over one million people have been displaced and 1,000 people reported dead in the country amid ongoing fighting between Christian and Muslim militia. 

European Union officials are in talks today over proposals to send the military forces to Central African Republic (CAR) in what is being described by exerts as a growing humanitarian crisis. 

Lithuania has not made the decision whether the country would contribute to the assumed military operation or not yet, the ministry of defense has said in a statement. 

"Lithuania is following the ongoing discussions; however, to date, there is no clear decision to start the operation and there is no agreement on its character, length, structure and scope. Lithuania cannot evaluate in the concrete its contribution in this operation," was written in the response of the Ministry of National Defense received by news agency ELTA.

Meanwhile, Latvian foreign minister, Edgars Rinkevics told The Baltic Times that the country would not be sending any military aid to the country. 

He said: "Latvia is ready to support EU mission in C.A.R but we do not plan to send Latvian troops there."
