“I would prefer to have a concrete date or complete term as to how long we can be in the program,” the Lithuanian central bank governor said in an interview published on Monday.

He added: “I think all options are on the table.”

MNI wrote Vasiliauskas said he favoured a decision at the Oct. 26 meeting but that it would depend on getting agreement on the options that will be presented by ECB technical committees.
