President Gitanas Nausėda extended congratulations to President Miloš Zeman of the Czech Republic on Independence Day.
The President underlined that Lithuanian and Czech people shared a similar historical experience and the same path towards independence. The Velvet Revolution that took place 30 years ago inspired the Czech people and all Europeans to move on with courage and determination towards democracy. Lithuania will always remember the historic moment in 2002 when we were invited to join the North Atlantic Treaty Organization at the NATO summit in Prague.
“Today, the Czech Republic is a committed partner and ally of Lithuania, working together to deal with urgent European and international agenda issues. We highly appreciate Czech Republic’s contribution to strengthening the security of Lithuania and the entire region. Czech troops are deployed to NATO’s enhanced forward presence in Lithuania. This year, the Czech Air Force is also on rotation in NATO’s Baltic Air Policing mission,” the President wrote in his message of congratulations.
Gitanas Nausėda expressed his firm belief that the bonds of friendship – built on common values and respect for the principles of democracy – would keep the two nations united as they move forward to ensure continental security and wellbeing. He further noted that dynamic people-to-people contacts in education, science, culture, tourism, and business would make the bilateral dialogue increasingly more effective.
Gitanas Nausėda wished the President of the Czech Republic and its people continued success, prosperity and unity.
