This year's convention has brought together 153 honorary consuls from 68 countries around the world. Lithuania has a total of 220 honorary consuls in 94 countries.

The consuls' meeting with Grybauskaitė focused on the geopolitical and security situation, energy independence, global economic trends and challenges facing the European Union, the president's press office said.
