President of the Republic of Lithuania

The President congratulated Australia on national day


President Gitanas Nausėda extended congratulations to Governor General David Hurley and the people of Australia on Australia Day.

“Lithuania and Australia are like-minded nations that promote the rule of law, respect for human rights, democracy, and the rules-based world order. I firmly believe that as we expand cooperation in bilateral and multilateral formats, we will be able to effectively deal with global challenges and contribute to ensuring peace and stability worldwide,” the President said in the message of congratulations.

According to the President, although Lithuania and Australia are separated by a vast geographical distance, they are strongly connected by trading, academic, cultural, sporting, and tourist ties – which we would like to develop and expand in the years ahead.

“The unity and consolidation demonstrated by the Australians in overcoming difficult challenges, including natural disasters, serve as a role model for the rest of the world,” said the President in his letter.
