"I extend my sincere congratulations to Donald Tusk, who has earned the trust of the European leaders and their recognition. I am glad that an experienced and wise politician from a neighbouring country takes over the helm of the European Union; he will be able to see the future of the EU from the perspective of the Central and Eastern European countries.

"I also extend my greetings to the European Socialist, Minister Federica Mogherini on her high-ranking appointment, and I wish her every success in her demanding and exceptionally important mission to speak in the world on behalf of us all," said the prime minister of Lithuania.
