President Gitanas Nausėda, attending the Three Seas Initiative (3SI) summit in Sofia, discussed the most pressing issues on the bilateral and international agenda with President Katerina Sakellaropoulou of Greece.

At the meeting, the presidents talked about the situation in Belarus and President Nausėda stressed the need to make a united pressure on the regime through sanctions, mobilizing the international community’s support for Belarusian society and the need to make a thorough investigation into the takeover of the Ryanair flight from Athens to Vilnius on May 23 in Minsk.

Both presidents agreed on the necessity to strengthen the external border of the EU in the East and in the South. “We will not allow migrants to be used as a tool of political pressure by the Belarusian regime,” the President of Lithuania said. He thanked the President of Greece for showing solidarity in the fight against illegal migration and for providing operational support for managing migration. 

President Nausėda invited President Sakellaropoulou to pay a visit to Lithuania for strengthening bilateral cooperation.
