According to Latvia‘s Vejonis, joint purchase of air defence systems has great potential in the format of bilateral cooperation, however, cooperation of all three Baltic States and Poland in this area is no less important.

“We have discussed ways to enhance our joint military exercises. There are many good ideas, including the air defence field and purchase of missiles. We can see considerable potential for our cooperation,” Vejonis said, stressing that all purchases will have to be made in accordance with approved funding.


President Grybauskaitė did not go into detail about the bilateral plans, but underlined that all potential purchases would have to be made in line with financial capabilities of all countries involved.
