Lithuania's law-enforcement unions have cancelled planned protests during a democracy forum on May 4 in Vilnius.
The event will link countries from around the Baltic and Black seas and involve the presence of US Vice President Dick Cheney.
"The decision not to protest has been made considering the possible effects upon the state of Lithuania and its foreign policy, in an effort to not discredit state officials and retain the improving name of trade unions," the unions said in a press release.
