Although all of Lithuania's biggest political parties emphasized before the 2016 elections the need to resume the relations with Poland, the Seimas board has not listed the aspiration among the main goals of parliamentary diplomacy, 15min.lt news portal said.

In a legal act adopted on March 3, the parliament's board accentuates the necessity to step up the relations with the United States and countries of the Eastern Partnership programme, as well as efforts against the construction of the Astravyets Nuclear Power Plant (NPP) in Belarus.

Parliamentary Vice-Speaker Gediminas Kirkilas of the Social Democrats says that Poland was not listed among the top six fields of parliamentary diplomacy, as maintaining international relations with the neighboring country costs less than analogous ties with other countries, for instance, the United States. Kirkilas stressed that members of the Seimas should attend more Lithuania-Poland parliamentary meetings than envisaged in the plan.
