Lithuania will join the NATO Multinational Joint Logistics Coordination Centre.

A memorandum on Lithuania's joining the center's operations will be signed by the commander of the country's Logistics Board, Colonel Sigitas Mundris, during the center's meeting in Tbilisi on 2-3 December, the Defense Ministry said.

Mundris says that Lithuania's accession to the centre's operations amid the recent changes in the geopolitical situation gains a special meaning due to the extreme importance of coordinating the needs of restationed NATO forces and hosting countries.

Initiated by the Czech Republic, an agreement to establish the centre was signed in Brussels on 28 October 2009 to improve coordination of logistics operations among NATO member-states and partner countries, with a permanent office opened in Prague on 1 January 2011. The following 11 countries have joined the centre's operations, including Austria, Bosnia and Herzegovina, Croatia, the Czech Republic, Georgia, Greece, Poland, Slovakia, Spain, the United Kingdom and the United States.
