Sympathy Used As a Meaning of 'Agree with Somebody'
I saw new usage of 'sympathy' so looked it up in a dictionary.
[NOUN][also N in pl, oft N with/for n] If you have sympathy with someone's ideas or opinions, you agree with them.
Then, does"1.I have some sympathy with this point of view" mean the same as "I agree with this point of view more or less."?
Similarly, "Lithuania still commands considerable international sympathy for its cause." mean the same as "Many countries are still in sympathy with Lithuania."?
