Steinmeier is expected to come to Vilnius on Thursday after visiting Estonia and Latvia.

It will be the first official visit to Lithuania by Steinmeier, who was elected Germany's president last February.

The German president will discuss bilateral relations and cooperation in the EU and NATO with Lithuanian officials. He will also visit German troops stationed in Rukla, in the central Lithuanian district of Jonava.

NATO this year deployed multinational battalions in the three Baltic countries and Poland as a deterrent to Russia following its actions in Ukraine and the Baltic Sea region. Germany leads the battalion in Lithuania.
