When CNN's host Richard Quest asked Grybauskaitė what she wants from NATO, she said that it must, at the very least, involve the exchange of information and best practices. According to her, NATO could “teach, sometimes, other organisations, such as the European Union, how to do it, at least between the member states, and even inside the member states. As we saw, in the case of Belgium, the information is not going around, it is not being used. “

She said that the same is the case with databases – for fingerprints and for migrants entering the European Union, especially when it comes to illegal immigrants. She said that such questions essentially remain under national jurisdiction and are not shared among member states.
