Lithuanian President Dalia Grybauskaitė says the European Commission's probe into alleged abuse of monopoly power by Russian gas giant Gazprom is an example of European solidarity.

According to the president, the European Union has to equally defend interests of all member states, including Lithuania, in relations with third countries. Grybauskaitė voiced her opinion at a Thursday meeting with Ruprecht Polenz, chairman of the Committee on Foreign Affairs of the German Bundestag.

"The head of state underlined that the EU has to equally defend interests of all member states, including Lithuania, in relations with third countries. It's especially important in energy. The president called the European Commission's decision to launch an investigation into Gazprom's monopolistic dominance an example of European solidarity, which shows that the EU has really started defending its interests," the statement by the Press Service of the President said.

Grybauskaitė also added that Germany, the Community's largest member, had a special role in resolving problems in the euro zone and the EU.

The EC has recently opened an antitrust probe into alleged abuse of dominant power by Gazprom in Central and Eastern European markets.

Lithuania pays the highest price in the EU for Gazprom gas.
