Prime Minister Ingrida Šimonytė extends greetings to Finland and its people celebrating their Independence Day, coupled with best wishes for prosperity and well-being.

‘Lithuania is honoured to call Finland a close ally and a strategic partner, with whom we enjoy ever-closer bilateral ties, strong and dynamic partnership in the European and Nordic-Baltic formats and share the same approach to the importance of a stronger cooperation regarding the regional and European security. The experience and unity of the Nordic-Baltic States is very important in building peaceful, prosperous, and strong Europe which is not susceptible to aggressors’ blackmail. Our continued unity in supporting Ukraine and in strengthening the sanctions against Russia and Belarus are of utmost importance as we seek sustainable peace in our continent. As we focus our efforts on security and peace, I also hope that our two nations will continue to expand our bilateral cooperation, especially in the fields of business, education, culture, and people-to-people contacts,’ reads Prime Minister’s message of greetings.
