Landsbergis in Washington, D.C.: “Lithuanian security landscape is being shaped in Kharkiv”

Today, on July 9, on the eve of the NATO Summit, Lithuania’s Foreign Minister Gabrielius Landsbergis attended a discussion “The Nordic-Baltic region: Cooperation in NATO’s Northeast” at the Atlantic Council in Washington, D.C.

“Lithuanian security landscape is being shaped in Kharkiv. And at this point, unfortunately, we're not exactly there, where we should be, in order to meet the threat that Russians and its allies pose to the Alliance. Putin has not yet done everything to unite us enough, in order to bring the answer that is needed,” Landsbergis said during the discussion.

The foreign ministers of Denmark, Iceland, Latvia, Norway, Sweden, Estonia and Finland, as well as representatives of Estonia and Finland, participated in the discussion and expressed their support for Ukraine’s membership in NATO.

“Ukaine’s NATO membership was agreed in Vilnius, so we have to keep our promise and move forward,” the head of Lithuania’s diplomacy told his counterparts.
