Dear Fellow People of Lithuania, Each and every word of my oath has resounded and will resound in my life as a personal commitment to you. We are destined to live in exceptional times and work together to take care of Lithuania. I know that it will be not easy, but we will continue the efforts started and we will find a way out of even the most difficult situations.
