"Symbolically, we plan to finish the construction of a power link with Sweden this year and the visit of the Swedish royal family is also planned in the fall. It's exceptional for its protocol elements. It will be royal family's official visit and it will crown our relations with Sweden, with the Nordic states," she told the Žinių Radijas radio on Tuesday morning.

An official visit of the Icelandic president is also planned as Lithuania will mark the 25th anniversary of its independence. "Iceland is the country we have many sentiments for as it was the first country to recognize our independence," Neliupšienė said.

A meeting of the three Baltic presidents is also scheduled for the fall in Lithuania as the country holds the presidency of the Baltic Council this year.
