Blinken held talks with the Lithuanian Foreign Minister

The Secretary of State noted the cooperation of the two countries in the protection of democracy.

U.S. Secretary of State Antony Blinken met with Lithuanian Foreign Minister Gabrielius Landsbergis on Wednesday.

Welcoming his Lithuanian counterpart at the Department of State, the head of American diplomacy noted that the two countries closely cooperate within the framework of NATO.

“We stand together for collective defense and security. We oppose economic coercion, including from China. And we strongly stand for democracy, including in Belarus,” Blinken said.

Landsbergis drew attention to the symbolism that the current meeting is taking place on the International Day of Democracy when both countries confirm their commitment to “protecting democracy, freedom and human rights around the world.”

“We are still a young democracy: only 30 years have passed since we restored our statehood,” the Lithuanian Foreign Minister said. – But we are convinced that it is very right to help other countries around the world that are trying to do the same.”
