The Lithuanian and Polish prime ministers are scheduled to meet on Friday to discuss initiatives to intensify bilateral intergovernmental cooperation in all economic areas, as well as to further strengthen regional security.

Lithuania will on the same day host a meeting of prime ministers within the framework of the Baltic Council of Ministers, which will also discuss a closer dialog between the Baltic countries and Poland.

In the bilateral meeting, the Lithuanian and Polish prime ministers will focus on the implementation of a project for synchronizing the Baltic power grids with the western European system and the course of the Via Baltica, Rail Baltica and Gas Interconnector Poland-Lithuania (GIPL) infrastructure projects of regional significance, as well as on enhancing economic and trade cooperation.

EU member states may have to decide this year whether or not to impose sanctions on Poland over its judicial reform. Diplomats say that Lithuania would most likely abstain from voting.
