I thank the Government of Lithuania, Lithuanian people and personally a great friend of Ukraine Minister of National Defence of the Republic of Lithuanian Arvydas Anusauskas! The Ukrainian-Lithuanian relations are very close and long-established. The modern history is being shaped jointly and in family manner. I appreciate our age long friendship and mutual strong support! And I am sure that today the military diplomacy is a key to the successful relations between the two countries.
