Lithuania will reintroduce permanent mandatory military conscription

In a unanimous decision, Lithuania's state defense council decided on Monday that mandatory military conscription should be reintroduced for good. The country's top defense authority headed by Lithuanian president Dalia Grybauskaite decided the country should reintroduce mandatory military conscription permanently rather than for five years as was decided a year and a half ago.
