VILNIUS -- Lithuania's new Foreign Minister Audronius Azubalis has said that he will largely maintain the same key foreign policy objectives and priorities as his predecessor.

"The rhetoric is changing. But, in my opinion, Lithuanian foreign policy remains the same,"  the foreign minister said in an interview with Veidas magazine.

"When I was a member of the Parliament, I had a more radical rhetoric, now that I am a member of the executive branch I have to take into consideration the specifics of my new duties," he said.
