Lithuanian prime-minister Andrews Kubilius would express himself for stricter labeling of cigarette packs with expressive pictures about tobacco harm, as it is done by Australians
"I haven't seen design of those cigarette packs. But as I have tried to quit smoking twice and the second time was successful, I wouldn't mind what Australians are using", - said Lithuanian prime-minister Andrews Kubilius.
In Australia on cigarette packs are placed pictures that image harm caused by tobacco, LETA/ELTA writes.
On August 15th Supreme Court of Australia has declined suit of tobacco societies about labeling withdrawal on cigarette packs.
From the end of the year in Australia cigarettes will be sold in identical packs of neutral color with big pictures about harm that tobacco causes to the body, - defective organs or ugly babies.
Cigarette brand will be printed only with tiny font. Australian Attorney General Nicola Roxon has told about "turning point in tobacco control field".
In their legal action tobacco societies have referred to the fact that new provisions infringe their rule on trade mark.
Roxon has urged other countries as well to follow example of Australia.
