"We are faced with a number of challenges – we must support the
issues that have to do with Poles in Lithuania and Lithuanians in
Poland, which we see as the biggest value of our joint heritage. We want
to discuss these issues by restoring the Parliamentary Assembly, which
includes the Polish Sejm and Senate and Lithuania's Seimas," Kuchcinski
said at the parliament.

The operations of the format of cooperation between Lithuanian and
Polish parliamentarians was frozen back in 2009 at the initiative of
Polish politicians.

During a visit by Lithuania's Parliamentary Speaker Viktoras
Pranckietis
in Warsaw last week, Poles pledged to initiate the first
meeting of the assembly.

The Polish speaker also accentuated he wanted to consolidate the
cooperation among the Baltic states and Poland, inviting parliamentary
leaders of countries in the region to come to Warsaw.

"Regional cooperation in all of Central Europe is crucial, therefore,
we will do our best to do this. We are inviting parliamentary speakers
of Central Europe to Warsaw in July for a joint discussion of Europe's
future and the whole of the European Union," said Kuchcinski.

On Sunday, Lithuania marks the 28th anniversary of restoration of
independence and the 100th birth anniversary of the anti-Soviet
resistance commander Adolfas Ramanauskas-Vanagas.

The Supreme Council of Lithuania on Mar. 11, 1990 adopted the Act of
the Re-Establishment of the State of Lithuania in a vote of 124 with six
abstentions, thus making Lithuania the first Soviet republic to
separate from Moscow.
