Friday, August 28, Warsaw - Continuing her working visit in Poland, President of the Republic of Lithuania Dalia Grybauskaitė met with Poland's President Lech Kaczyński in Warsaw to discuss opportunities for strategic cooperation between Lithuania and Poland.

"Our Presidential Council will remain and we will continue the endeavours already started by leaders of our countries," President Dalia Grybauskaitė said. "Lithuania and Poland have the same interests within the European Union, and I am ready to cooperate to the benefit of both countries. Lithuania is prepared to tackle the issues of concern to both countries, including those of concern to ethnic minorities. Respecting its all citizens no matter which ethnic minority they belong to, Lithuania seeks to settle their concerns as soon as possible."

In the meeting with her Polish counterpart, President Grybauskaitė underlined Lithuania's political commitment to remain a nuclear power state and to build a new nuclear power plant here, and invited Poland to contribute, as a partner, to the construction of the plant.

The two Presidents confirmed they would concert their actions also in their relations with Eastern neighbours. The President comes back to Vilnius late in the evening today.
