Lithuanian President Dalia Grybauskaitė said at the General Assembly of the United Nations on Tuesday that international agreements should make clear that the use of energy for political goals is unacceptable.

"Our answer to energy-related conflict prevention should be international agreements which make clear that the use of energy to pursue political goals is unacceptable. Responsibility for violations should be also clear and unavoidable," the president said in New York.

"We have to grant international institutions greater discretion to launch probes and impose sanctions on activities that hinder the free flow of energy resources, impede diversification or set unfair prices for customers," Grybauskaitė said in her speech, sent to BNS by the Press Service of the President.

According to the president, the international community should eliminate the use of energy dependency as an instrument for political or economic blackmail.

"With the still existing practices of price-fixing and abuse of monopolistic positions, which both distort competition, there can be no development, no security, no effectiveness," the president said.

Grybauskaitė also underlined that nuclear safety standards should be strengthened and, if needed, legal international imperatives should be adopted.
