President of the Republic of Lithuania

Message of greetings from President Gitanas Nausėda on State Day

2020-07-06

Dear Fellow People of Lithuania,

Happy State Day to everyone!

July 6 takes us back to the roots of our country that very decisive moment where the stream of our shared history began.

We entered the West with King Mindaugas for the first time and we keep moving along the chosen path. Raised and nurtured in the family of European nations we remain open to those who cherish freedom and obey the law.

History teaches us to make the right choices: to foster unity and mutual understanding, reach out to each other rather than repel, and work together for what seems bold and hard to achieve.

We just have to be daring enough. Therefore, I encourage you today: let us be proud of what has been achieved and let us boldly change the things we do not like.

We are all architects of Lithuania’s history. That means there is nothing impossible for us.

I wish you a happy celebration!

Gitanas Nausėda, President of the Republic of Lithuania
