Leading European affairs journalist Peter O’Donnell is joined by Linas Linkevičius, the Minister of Foreign Affairs of Lithuania, for an exclusive interview on the European Council Presidency’s view on the Transatlantic Trade and Investment Partnership (TTIP) negotiations.
Linkevičius reiterates the importance of a possible Transatlantic Trade and Investment Partnership between the European Union and the United States of America for Europe’s economy. Therefore, he wants to continue talks as planned and calls “not to dramatise the situation” and let professionals find answers to the questions raised when it comes to the NSA spying allegations.
