    From being the sheriff in Stranger Things, to Lithuanian FM.

    From 🇺🇸, of the older generation , almost Pootlers age , I am VERY VERY HAPPY to hear these views from this younger generation, which I have great faith in .
    I am impressed with them and think we need to see MORE of them . They have their fingers in the PULSE ,,,. It is very Clear that they appreciate our experience. I am beyond proud of General Miley and Sec Austin ; but these folks can better Translate that wisdom and experience to TODAYS problems .

    As a US Citizen, it's weird hearing this kind of discussion of policy. All we get are ramblings about how well our political party is doing and how badly the other party is doing for every question.

    Superb Lithuanian Foreign Minister. Excellently informed, very articulated in his answers & analysis. Excellent anchor who carried this interview so well with an Intelligent Politician. Lithuania & Europe is in safe hands when you have people like these.

    What an excellent interview and what a clear minded, intelligent foreign minister. Were there more like him amongst us. I found his analysis of all points to be correct.

  • qlnbd
    Its so weird to hear a govt minister talking like a human being and not in deceptive politcese. I'm British so I'm not used to that.
    Very impressive and articulate too.
    Thank you.
  • CautionCU
    Stand strong and don't be discouraged. I would be the first to tell you that the USA has made mistakes as we all have. That said one side in this conflict supports sovereignty and the other autocracy. The choice isn't difficult.

    Bravo and thank you, Lithuania! And what an eloquent, well-spoken foreign minister!
