"Together with the heads of the Latvian and Estonian Cabinets of ministers, we intend to discuss the cooperation among the Baltic states in an effort to step up security, as well as cooperation in the fields of transport, energy and strategic communication. The current geopolitical situation forces us to seek extremely close cooperation among our nations," the government's press service cited Butkevičius as saying on the eve of the visit.

The Baltic prime ministers hold informal meetings once a year in one of the three countries.
