On March 11, 1990, the Supreme Council of the Republic of Lithuania signed the Act on the Restoration of an Independent State of Lithuania saying that the execution of the sovereign powers of the State of Lithuania abolished by foreign forces in 1940 is re-established, and henceforth Lithuania is again an independent state.
The Act gives a reference to the Act of Independence of 16 February 1918 which has never lost its legal effect. The Act was signed by Vytautas Landsbergis, the Chairman of the Supreme Council of the Republic of Lithuania, and other Council members.
