Linkevičius: Lack of leadership is the greatest challenge facing Europe today
“We have no other choice but to undertake the responsibility for the future of the EU. So let’s look at the EU’s success stories to draw inspiration and turn crisis into a new opportunity. Clear leadership and a strong relationship with society are necessary,” said the Minister of Foreign Affairs of Lithuania Linas Linkevičius at the conference “60 Years after the Treaty of Rome – Recharging Europe” at the Seimas (Parliament) of Lithuania.
Lithuania’s Foreign Minister recognised the contribution made by a united Europe to the maintenance of peace and wellbeing, and stressed the need to effectively address current challenges, particularly the challenge of ensuring our safety both in the EU and beyond, also in the EU’s neighbourhood.
On 17 March, Lithuania’s Foreign Minister took part in the conference “60 Years after the Treaty of Rome – Recharging Europe” at the Seimas.
The conference was co-organized by the Seimas, the Ministry of Foreign Affairs, the Representation of the European Commission and the European Parliament Information Office in Lithuania.
Participants from Lithuania and member states of the European Union, politicians, representatives from the EU institutions, academic centres, as well as civil society representatives shared their insights into the EU’s further development and ways for the EU to most effectively respond to expectations of the people, also the best way to ensure prosperity and security for all.
