On Friday,  Lithuanian President Gitanas Nausėda had a phone conversation with German Chancellor Angela Merkel, who informed him about the contents of her conversation with Alexander Lukashenko.

The Office of the Lithuanian President did not provide more details. In a statement, it said Nausėda urged more sanctions against the Minsk regime, if necessary, and said the humanitarian responsibility lies with Belarus.

This week, Merkel had two phone conversations with Alexander Lukashenko. Although Nausėda has backed Western leaders reaching out to Lukashenko, the move was criticised by Foreign Minister Gabrielius Landsbergis.
