Such an agreement would mean that Latvian ambulances could provide services in the Lithuanian territory near the Lithuanian-Latvian border and vice versa.

Alina Žilinaitė, spokeswoman for the Lithuanian minister of health, told BNS Lithuania such an agreement "would improve accessibility of medical assistance for residents of the border region (up to 20 km from the border) but that would happen in exceptional cases when medics from the other country could reach the patient faster."

The Lithuanian Ministry of Health has submitted related projects to other institutions for further coordination to prepare for the signing of such an agreement. According to Žilinaitė, it could be signed in October and would come into force after ratification by the Lithuanian parliament.

It will be the first Lithuania's agreement with a neighboring country to provide ambulance services.
