On 27 April, the Minister of Foreign Affairs of Lithuania Linas Linkevičius congratulated the Minister of Foreign Affairs of the Netherlands Stef Blok on the national holiday – the King’s Day. Linkevičius wished him every success, as well as prosperity.
“The Kingdom of the Netherlands has always been a particularly close friend of Lithuania. Many young Lithuanians choose to study in the Netherlands, our businessmen enjoy solid links. We also share an ambitious co-operative agenda based on common values. In this light I wish to convey my appreciation to the Dutch military forces that serve admirably as part of the NATO’s forward presence in Lithuania”, the Foreign Minister wrote in the letter.
Lithuania’s Foreign Minister also expressed his pleasure at the fact that on the occasion of the celebration of the centenary of the restoration of the state of Lithuania, King Willem-Alexander and Queen Maxima would visit the country in June. Linkevičius believes that cooperation between Lithuania and the Netherlands will continue expanding and that new initiatives launched by our nations, as well as joint projects pursued by our citizens, will help secure national and continental success.
