Good relations with Poland are Lithuania’s national interest, Minister Linkevičius says

DELFI / Kiril Čachovskij

The minister says there are many reasons and opportunities for the relations to improve because Lithuania and Poland are countries of the same region and share many interests in areas like security, defence and energy independence.

“We must cooperate, otherwise we will be hindering Lithuania’s national interests,” said Linkevičius.

According to the minister, a number of topics in bilateral relations between Vilnius and Warsaw are being artificially escalated. Meanwhile, political will is needed to deal with the existing obstacles, such as the adoption of the law on ethnic minorities by the Lithuanian parliament.

“Together with the Polish foreign minister we are discussing new initiatives and communicating rather constructively,” said Linkevičius.
