  • PM suggests Latvia may have to take in more refugees refugees
    State Television on May 5 Straujuma said that Latvia would prepare its proposals to be reviewed at the next meeting of the EU interior ministers where the question of quotas would be discussed However I wish to emphasise that quotas for all member states will be set according to the principle of voluntariness yet it is clear that we will have to show solidarity with the other EU member states on this matter said Straujuma When asked if Latvia would have to take in refugees Straujuma replied in the affirmative adding nevertheless that this matter had not been discussed yet therefore she could not give a specific number of refugees that Latvia would have to accept The European Parliament has approved a resolution that urges member states to introduce quotas to help accommodate refugees arriving in Europe The European Commission President Jean Claude Juncker has said that the Commission would make the same proposal for all EU member states Comments Related Articles U S heavy weaponry to be deployed in Latvia from autumn 2015 Latvia Lumbers Towards Higher Spending on Defence Russia Today requests permission to establish Latvian subsidiary Subscribe Advertise Log In Please enter your username and password Forgot your password Login Related Articles Latvian government reaches for guns over health care Crude oil leaks from Latvia s VNT terminal Latvia and China discuss bilateral cooperation Drunk AirBaltic crew sentenced to jail in Norwegian court Subscribe A subscription to The Baltic Times is a cost effective way of staying in touch with the latest Baltic news and views enabling you full access from anywhere with an Internet connection Subscribe Now About The Baltic Times The Baltic Times is an independent monthly newspaper that covers latest political economic business and cultural events in Estonia Latvia and Lithuania Born of a

  • Latvija in brief
    thousand people have already signed the petition and if a total of ten thousand people sign it the petition gets submitted to Latvia s parliament the Saeima The initiative to collect these signatures was started on August 2013 and still has almost half way to go however and even then there is no guarantee that Latvian parliamentarians will opt to change time The idea of this petition is simple to change the Latvian time zone from UTC 2 GMT 2 to UTC 3 GMT 3 which would negate the need of modifying clocks twice a year Changing the time zone is an exclusive option for every country and it isn t disallowed by European Union directives So time will tell if this petition succeeds Riga s wild boars In recent months there have been several wild boar visits in Riga with one of the latest being their visit to Freedom Monument After spotting them at around 5 30 a m police together with veterinarians captured the animals and transported them to wooded area outside Riga Because of the regular wild boar visits to Riga Riga city Council has decided to create a hunting coordination commission where to decide what to do with animals and their visits in town Questions have also been asked on how to react if someone meets wild boar on a street The answer is to turn the opposite direction and walk away and the animal will probably do the same Comments Related Articles U S heavy weaponry to be deployed in Latvia from autumn 2015 Latvia Lumbers Towards Higher Spending on Defence Russia Today requests permission to establish Latvian subsidiary Subscribe Advertise Log In Please enter your username and password Forgot your password Login Related Articles Latvian government reaches for guns over health care Crude oil
