Lithuania will not sign the UN Migration Pact, Lithuanian Prime Minister Saulius Skvernelis said Wednesday, however Vilnius will voice approval for it.

“A minister will participate in the conference, express approval of the UN pact… Nothing will be signed by the minister,” Skvernelis stated at a press conference on Wednesday.

The Global Compact for Safe, Orderly and Regular Migration is expected to be signed on 10-11 December in Marrakech.

The United States withdrew immediately, followed by Hungary, Poland, the Czech Republic, Austria, and more, over issues with declaring all migration a human right and criminalising criticism or objection to it.
