Lithuanian Minister Calls for Energy Accord, Verslo Zinios Says

Dec. 14 (Bloomberg) -- Lithuania’s new energy minister said leaders must finally agree on an energy strategy just as they did to achieve membership in the European Union and NATO, Verslo Zinios reported.

Jaroslav Neverovic, 38, who was chief executive of the company building a power link between Lithuania and Poland before taking office yesterday, said he thought the main objective should be fostering competition in energy markets, according to an interview in the newspaper today.

Lithuania must complete power links with Poland and Sweden by the end of 2015, finish a new liquefied natural-gas terminal as fast as possible, start work on a gas pipeline link with Poland, seek EU aid and get Latvian and Estonian participation in the project, the paper quoted him as saying.

Regarding plans to build a nuclear plant, which voters rejected in an October referendum, Neverovic said extensive analysis and public discussion were now needed, Verslo Zinios reported.
