On 17 May, at the invitation of the President of Poland Andrzej Duda, the Minister of Foreign Affairs of Lithuania Linas Linkevičius participated in the UN Security Council Open Debate on Upholding International Law within the Context of the Maintenance of International Peace and Security.

In his address, Linkevičius emphasized that non-compliance with international provisions posed a serious challenge to international peace and security, and caused long-term frozen conflicts. The Foreign Minister noted that only a strong and effective Security Council could respond adequately to the current security challenges and ensure democratic processes. Lithuania‘s Foreign Minister was referring to the fact that the Russian Federation should not teach the international community about the norms of international law, when he recalled not only the long-lasting conflicts in Moldova and Georgia, but also the occupation and annexation of Crimea by Russia, which clearly violated international law.
