Lithuanian Minister of Foreign Affairs Linas Linkevičius has decided to submit his proposal concerning the country's ambassadors to Hungary and Azerbaijan after the Seimas Committee on Foreign Affairs discusses the issue on Friday.

"I will submit my conclusions and proposals after the Seimas Committee on Foreign Affairs gathers," the minister told BNS by phone from Brussels where he is attending a meeting of EU ministers.

Earlier this week, Lithuanian Prime Minister Algirdas Butkevičius declared no-confidence in Lithuania's Ambassador to Hungary Renatas Juška and Ambassador to Azerbaijan Artūras Žurauskas whose private phone conversations were leaked online. The prime minister said his position was determined by moral things.

In phone conversations published on YouTube, the diplomats allegedly share their personal views on the conflict between Azerbaijan and Armenia, the internal situation in Turkmenistan and exchange bitter remarks about state leaders. Authenticity of the recordings has not been confirmed or denied.

The Seimas Committee on Foreign Affairs is holding a meeting on Friday, and representatives of various institutions, including the State Security Department, are invited, Petras Auštrevičius, a committee member, has told BNS.

Pursuant to the Constitution of Lithuania, ambassadors are recalled by President Dalia Grybauskaitė upon a proposal of the Cabinet.
