Tuesday, October 27, Vilnius - President Dalia Grybauskaitė extended congratulations to President Gurbanguly Berdymuhamedov of Turkmenistan on the occasion of Independence Day.

The President underlined that although Lithuania and Turkmenistan were separated by thousands of kilometers and displayed a very different cultural and historical experience, even the longest of distances could not impede cooperation in today's globalized world.

"I wish Turkmenistan - an independent state for two decades now - to use even more effectively the vast range of possibilities for cooperation with Europe," President Grybauskaitė wrote in her message of congratulations.
