Danuta Wałęsa, the wife of Poland's former President Lech Wałęsa, says she wishes Poland and Lithuania communicated like a family and that she could see bilingual Lithuanian-Polish signs in Lithuania, similar to those in Poland.

"I wish that Lithuania and Poland were like a brother and sister, or two brothers, or two sisters. So that Poles in Lithuania felt very good, and Poles and Lithuanians respected each other. So that one could find signs in Polish and Lithuanian in Lithuania, just like in a family," Wałęsa told journalists in Vilnius on Tuesday.

It's her fourth visit to Lithuania. She came to promote a play "Danuta W" based on her autobiography in which she tells about herself, her family and Poland's tumultuous history over the past decades. She does not mention Lithuanian-Polish relations in her book, however.
