Pompeo "appointed" Lithuania as the main in Belarus

As TASS reports with reference to the statement of the press service of the US State Department, US Secretary of State Michael Pompeo met on Wednesday in Washington with Lithuanian Foreign Minister Linas Linkevicius and expressed his gratitude for Lithuania’s role in the situation around Belarus.

“The Secretary of State expressed gratitude to Lithuania for its leading role in ensuring the independence and territorial integrity of Belarus, as well as the democratic rights of the people of this country,” the document says.

Let us remind you that the Seimas of Lithuania adopted a resolution in which it called the ex-presidential candidate Svetlana Tikhanovskaya “the elected leader of the republic.” In response, the Council of the Republic of the National Assembly of Belarus accused Lithuania of gross interference in the internal affairs of the republic and manifestation of open disrespect for the sovereign right of the Belarusian people to independently choose the leadership and determine the path of development of their country.
