7:08 pm on 28 August 2013

Diplomatic relations appear set to begin between Kiribati and Lithuania.

The Lithuania Tribune reports that the Lithuanian government has given a green light to a Foreign Ministry proposal to forge ties with Kiribati and the Carribean nation of Dominica.

The Ministry says the support of Dominica and Kiribati is crucial for Lithuania's multilateral initiatives in the United Nations, as Lithuanian representatives run for posts in intergovernmental structures of the organisation.
