On Friday, Poroshenko and Lithuania's President Dalia Grybauskaitė will attend the annual Lithuania-Ukraine presidential council and open a discussion on Europe's future and a bilateral business forum, the Lithuanian presidential press service told BNS.

Bilateral meetings of Lithuania's and Ukraine's presidents are held at least once a year.

Lithuania is one of Ukraine's strongest supporters in its efforts to draw closer to the European Union (EU) and diminish the Russian influence, at the same time urging Kiev to be more active in its counter-corruption efforts.
