VILNIUS - If the European Union fails to agree on a visa ban for Russian tourists, Lithuanian officials will consider proposing introducing such a ban on a regional level, Lithuanian Foreign Minister Gabrielius Landsbergis says.

"First of all, we are seeking a European solution because it's the most sustainable and legally correct one. (...) If such a solution is not found, we do not rule out looking for a regional solution that would involve the Baltic states, Poland and, potentially, Finland," Lithuania's top diplomat told reporters after a meeting of the parliamentary Committee on Foreign Affairs on Tuesday.
