Let me assure you that Lithuania will continue to stand firm in support of Georgia’s territorial integrity and sovereignty and its European and Euro-Atlantic aspirations. My country remains committed to further strengthening our bilateral cooperation and contributing to bringing Georgia closer to NATO and the EU, based on our mutual values and freedoms.
