Lithuania PM 'sure' of euro entry in 2014

RIGA, Sept 24 (Reuters) - Lithuania’s prime minister said on Friday he was confident his country will gain entry to the euro zone in 2014.

“I am sure in 2014 we will have the euro,” Andrius Kubilius told a news conference after meeting with his Latvian and Estonian peers.

Lithuania missed a planned euro adoption in 2007 due to inflation exceeding Maastricht entry criteria by a whisker.

Baltic peer Estonia is to adopt the euro next year.
