Government spokesman Piotr Müller emphasized that in the recent years the Polish-Lithuanian relations had picked up the pace, and cooperation with Lithuania in the fields of energy, trade, economy, business and culture was becoming increasingly close.

 

"Lithuania is a strategic partner of Poland not only because of historical ties or geographical location but primarily because of a similar position on defence, attitude to the situation in Belarus, Ukraine and Russia. We share common goals in energy security and infrastructure development in the region. We work closely together on the EU agenda, such as the European budget, transport, logistics and freedom to provide services,” Müller pointed out.

 

As he added, good relations between the two countries allow for even stronger support of the Polish community in Lithuania.

 

During the visit, the Prime Minister will also take part in prayer in the Chapel of Our Lady of the Gate of Dawn and then lay flowers at the Ross Cemetery.
