Under the resolutions drafted by the Foreign Ministry, Meilūnas should start heading the embassy in Dublin on August 24, replacing Rasa Adomaitienė who had been working there since 2014.

Meilūnas who has degrees in medicine and law has worked at the government and the Foreign Ministry, serving as presidential adviser for five years and later as Lithuania's ambassador to Poland.
