Second phase of Brexit talks – for smooth future relations

2017-12-15

President Dalia Grybauskaitė attends the European Council meeting that takes stock of the outcomes reached during the first phase of Brexit negotiations. The EU leaders also discuss top priorities in the second phase of negotiations, which will establish a new model of EU-UK future relations. The key matter to Lithuania has already been secured in Brexit negotiations, i.e. rights of the Lithuanian citizens residing in the UK will be protected, and the United Kingdom will uphold its financial commitments. According to the President, the most complex work awaits in the future. Following the agreement on the UK’s withdrawal, the EU and UK will have to establish a completely new model of future relations. For Lithuania, the mutual benefit as well as close relations in trade and defense are paramount. This represents our national security and economic interest.
