The president underlined that the Constitution of the Commonwealth of Lithuania and Poland reminded us of the very special bond connecting the two nations – neighbors and partners.
"We face the same challenges. We share the same approach to key regional issues and uniform interests in Europe and the transatlantic community. We pursue the common objective of ensuring well-being and security for our people," Grybauskaitė wrote in her message of congratulations.
In her words, the projects Lithuania and Poland are implementing together across a wide range of fields made the two countries stronger and consolidated the rights and values of our citizens. Grybauskaitė noted that the challenges we define very clearly and address with full responsibility, the open bilateral dialogue based on reciprocal understanding, and the unity we demonstrate in protecting our democratic ideals remain crucially important in the region and across the continent.
Adopted on May 3 of 1791, the Constitution of the Lithuanian-Polish Commonwealth is considered the first written constitution in Europe and the second worldwide after the 1790 constitution of the United States. Poland celebrates May 3 as a national holiday.
Over the past few years, the relations between Vilnius and Warsaw have been overcast by different stances on the situation of national minorities.
