Prime Minister Saulius Skvernelis has extended greetings to new Prime Minister of France Jean Castex, along with the wishes for every success in achieving the goals that are important for France and for the whole of Europe.

‘France is an important partner of Lithuania, therefore, we are interested in further strengthening dialogue and cooperation on all issues of bilateral, European and international cooperation. We will continue promoting European values both in Europe and beyond towards sustainable growth, international peace and stability. France’s role in these matters has always been extremely important, and Lithuania will continue to be your trustworthy partner.’

According to Saulius Skvernelis, Lithuania highly values unity and solidarity in the European Union and NATO. He has sincerely thanked France for its contribution to NATO’s efforts in ensuring Baltic security and defence. The Prime Minister has emphasised that nothing shows solidarity better than practical cooperation, thus welcoming France’s support to Lithuania by sending a contingent of 300 French troops and equipment.
