Linkevicius about UkrPolLitBrig: It’s know-how to study NATO standards

Ukraine has enough potential to participate in the Baltic-Black Sea cooperation, Foreign Minister of Lithuania Linas Linkevicius has said.

“Ukraine has a significant potential. This vector should be used properly,” the Lithuanian foreign minister said in an exclusive commentary to own Ukrinform correspondent.

According to Linkyavichus, the Viking transport route should connect not only the Black and Baltic Seas, but to go further to the north – to the Scandinavian countries, as well as to the south – to Turkey.

“In terms of commerce, this is a very promising rout, and not only for the transport sector, but for the energy cooperation as well,” the Lithuanian foreign minister said.

As to the security sector, the Lithuanian minister noted the creation and start of the Ukrainian-Lithuanian-Polish Brigade (UkrPolLitBrig) work.

“It’s important that it's not only a military formation, but a know-how format to study NATO standards, trainings. This is a model of multilateral cooperation,” Linkevicius said.
