“This year, both Lithuania and Latvia mark anniversaries of outstanding historical significance: 30 years of their re-established statehood. Today we delight not only in our hard-fought freedom, but also in very close collaboration at the bilateral level as well as within the European Union and NATO as we work to consolidate national independence. The common history that Lithuania and Latvia share binds us in strong commitment. We cherish freedom and together we defend it to safeguard the security and welfare of our people,” the President wrote in his message of congratulations.

Gitanas Nausėda underlined that deep friendship ties and joint initiatives made the bond between the two countries very strong. According to the President, in the face of unprecedented global challenges created by the pandemic, the Baltic States were demonstrating exceptional cooperation and unity, setting an example of joint efforts to overcome this crisis and its consequences.

The President wished Latvia long years of prosperity and continued health, concord and success to its citizens.
