President Dalia Grybauskaitė met with Polish President Bronisław Komorowski who is currently on vacation in Lithuania.

During their meeting, the two presidents discussed the relations between Lithuania and Poland, national minority situation in both countries, common foreign policy priorities, the continuity of bilateral cooperation and strategic partnership, the implementation of regional strategic energy and transport projects, the preparations of both countries for the EU's rotating presidency and the chairmanship of the OSCE, and NATO's new strategic concept.

"Lithuania and Poland have been long united by their shared history, traditions and partnership. Just recently, we have celebrated the 600th Anniversary of the Battle of Žalgiris (Grunwald). Our two nations are bound to stand together not only by their common historical past, but also by the interests that our countries and their people share today. Together with President Bronisław Komorowski, we will work for the continued stability of relations between our countries, based on neighborly understanding and mutual trust," Dalia Grybauskaitė underlined.

The Presidents of Lithuania and Poland agreed to continue the strategic transport and energy projects in building gas and electricity connections between Lithuania and Poland, which are of major importance for Poland, the Baltic States and the European Union, to coordinate their national priorities - NATO's collective defense and responding to new threats - and to have these priorities included in the new strategic concept.
