Acting President bids farewell to outgoing Latvian Ambassador


Vilnius, June 9th. Acting President Arturas Paulauskas received today outgoing Latvian Ambassador Maira Mora.

The Acting President rejoiced at the neighbourly relations between Lithuania and Latvia, which are developing successfully, and underlined the importance of co-ordinating action following the accession of the Baltic States to the European Union and NATO.

Such rational decisions as the joint air space patrolling of the three Baltic States not only help in saving resources but also demonstrate political maturity and strategic thinking, Acting President Paulauskas said.

Ambassador Mora and the staff of the Latvian Embassy have made a substantial contribution to building the friendly, close and mutually beneficial relations between the two neighbouring countries, the Acting President underlined.

“You have served as Ambassador during the significant period of our integration with NATO and the European Union. I am pleased that we marked both historic events together, here in Lithuania,” said the Acting President.

Acting President Paulauskas conveyed condolences over the death of the Latvian soldier in Iraq.

The acting head of state thanked Ambassador Mora for successful co-operation and wished the Ambassador success in her new mission – that of Latvian Ambassador to Belarus. “The road from Minsk to Riga goes through Vilnius where you are always welcome,” the Acting President said to the Ambassador.
