Saulius Skvernelis, the former Prime Minister of Lithuania, has criticized the ruling majority for pressuring Germany over the planned deployment of a German brigade in Lithuania.
Skvernelis believes that such actions harm bilateral relations between Lithuania and Germany, especially since the infrastructure is not yet ready to host the brigade.
The current Minister of Foreign Affairs, Gabrielius Landsbergis, has recently stated that Lithuania may have to look for another partner to deploy its brigade if Germany is unable to fulfill its commitment.
Skvernelis has expressed concern that the rhetoric and actions of the ruling parties do not contribute to a pragmatic dialogue between Lithuania and Germany.
He believes that the pressure being exerted on Germany is somewhat unjustified, and that Lithuania has not done its homework in preparing the infrastructure needed to host the brigade.
The situation has raised concerns about the relationship between Lithuania and Germany, and the potential fallout if Germany is unable to fulfill its commitment.
Skvernelis’s criticism of the ruling majority highlights the need for pragmatic dialogue and cooperation between Lithuania and Germany.
