Extracts from the joint press briefing by José Manuel Barroso and Gediminas Kirkilas, Lithuanian Prime Minister
Following bilateral talks today in Brussels with Gediminas Kirkilas, Lithuanian Prime Minister, José Manuel Barroso, President of the EC, said he expected the Lithuanian government to respect its legal commitment arising from the accession treaty to close the Ignalina power station by 2009.
José Manuel Barroso told journalists that this is a commitment that must be honoured as they must never compromise on safety.
Gediminas Kirkilas said that his government does not want to violate agreements but to have some new interpretation. He indicated that consultations will continue with the European Commission and the EU Member States before next EU Summit in October where Lithuania hopes that the European Commission will present a positive position on country's energy situation.
Referring to the Georgia/Russia crisis, José Manuel Barroso welcomed the appointment today of Hansjörg Haber as Head of the European Union Monitoring Mission (EUMM) to Georgia. SHOTLIST
