Lithuanian President Valdas Adamkus will approve Ambassador to Belarus Petras Vaitiekunas as the country's new foreign minister very soon, according to a presidential spokeswoman.
Vaitiekunas has said he plans no major revolutions in foreign policy.
"Lithuania's foreign policy has been developing for 16 years, it has very clear features, goals and visions," he said, as quoted by BNS. "We are members of the European Union and NATO. We have good relations with neighbors. These principles should not be changed."
