Until now, the politician was a rapporteur of one of its sub-committees.

"This is a new challenge and great responsibility because committee reports constitute the most important part of NATO Parliamentary Assembly's work. I hope that my new post will contribute to strengthening the security situation in Lithuania, our region and entire NATO even more," she says.
