Lithuanian Seimas adopted a Resolution on the long-term guidelines and continuity of foreign and European policy. According to a press release published on the legislature’s website, foreign policy priorities also include support for Georgia’s European integration.
“The Seimas believes that the EU enlargement should take place according to the accession criteria set out in the Treaties. It considers the Western Balkans to be a successful example of the EU enlargement, which should further inspire the European integration processes in other regions, including the Eastern Partnership region. The Lithuanian Parliament will seek that, during the Polish and Lithuanian Presidencies of the Council of the EU in 2025 and 2027, the associated EU Eastern Partnership countries (Moldova, Georgia, and Ukraine) be granted the status of EU candidate countries and the EU accession negotiations be launched”, – the information notes.
The Seimas Resolution was adopted by 112 votes in favor with 3 abstentions.
