SOUNDBITE (English) Dalia GRYBAUSKAITĖ, President of Lithuania

The deal is possible, but the timing depends on what kind of deepness of drama some countries would like to perform. I think whatever we wanted is already on the way of agreement.

SOUNDBITE (English) Dalia GRYBAUSKAITĖ, President of Lithuania

I think the main thing is that we would like to see UK in Europe and we would like to help the British people to make a decision, but no matter what sort of face lifting or face saving we do here, it's all up to British people to decide. I can't imagine Europe without the British. It is a drama and everybody plays its own role.
