PanARMENIAN.Net - Lithuania supports the achievement of a peace agreement between Armenia and Azerbaijan, President Gitanas Nausėda said in a statement to the media after a meeting with Armenian President Vahagn Khachaturian on Friday, May 20.

"Dialogue and mutual understanding are very important, because there is no other way forward," he said.
