    “Lithuania is our important ally. We have always underscored the fact that shared neighbourhood and history is a good basis for bringing our positions closer together in other areas,” said Foreign Minister Jacek Czaputowicz following his meeting today with Lithuanian Foreign Minister Linas Linkevičius in Vilnius.

    Poland’s top diplomat met with Lithuania’s most senior officials, President Dalia Grybauskaitė, Prime Minister Saulius Skvernelis and Foreign Minister Linas Linkevičius on his first official visit to Lithuania. They discussed cooperation in a broad range of issues on the bilateral, regional and international agendas. Other topics included security, joint energy and infrastructure projects (Via Carpathia, Rail Baltica, Via Baltica), cooperation in NATO and the European Union, specifically the key issues of the EU’s future budget, the future of the EU, Brexit, and migration challenges. “We are both against the Nord Stream 2 project and we shall coordinate our policies in this respect both with the United States and, most importantly, within the EU,” underscored Minister Jacek Czaputowicz.

     

    Bilateral issues, political, economic and cultural cooperation were high on the agenda of Polish-Lithuanian talks. The chief of Polish diplomacy raised the issue of problems of the Polish minority in Lithuania. Minister Jacek Czaputowicz mentioned that this minority was and continues to be one of the most important themes in the Polish-Lithuanian dialogue, and expressed satisfaction with the fact that a Polish-Lithuanian working group was set up. “It will look into specific solutions so that well-grounded issues reported to us by the Polish minority are resolved in line with the standards applicable to national minorities,” concluded the minister.

     

    Minister Czaputowicz also took part in the official opening of the Polish Embassy’s and the Polish Institute’s new location in the Pac Palace – “a 17th-century architectural pearl situated in the heart of Vilnius’s Old Town. I believe that the new seat will very well serve the implementation of tasks entrusted to our diplomatic representatives in Lithuania, and thus contribute to closer good-neighbourly Polish-Lithuanian relations,” said the chief of Polish diplomacy at the opening ceremony

     

    The Polish foreign minister’s visit to Lithuania also included his participation in the inauguration of an exhibition dedicated to the Polish Council to Aid Jews (“Żegota”). Later, Minister Czaputowicz met with Sebastian Rozwadowski and Benediktas Vanagas – a Polish-Lithuanian race team that takes part in the Dakar Rally, and laid wreaths at the Antalkalis cemetery and at the Mother and the Heart of Son Mausoleum at the Rasos Cemetery in Vilnius
