Mateusz Morawiecki, who came to the neighbouring country to inaugurate the Polish-Lithuanian power connection LitPol Link, said the potential gas project might be co-financed by the European Union.

"We are ready for a discussion about a gas link. We count on the European Union's support, as it would be a cross-border project," Morawiecki is quoted by Reuters.

"The aim would be connecting our gas systems. The aim is to mutually reinforce our security system. We can be a safety valve for Lithuania, Latvia and Estonia," he said.

Morawiecki also said Poland, which has a liquefied natural gas (LNG) terminal at the Baltic port of Swinoujscie, would consider common gas purchases with Lithuania.
