Lithuanian president supports Euro-Atlantic integration of Ukraine and Georgia

During a meeting of the NATO-Ukraine-Georgia Commission, President of the Republic of Lithuania Dalia Grybauskaitė expressed strong support to the territorial integrity and sovereignty of the two countries, as well as to their aspiration to become members of the Alliance.

This was reported by the press service of the Lithuanian president.

"Ukraine and Georgia are paying the most painful price - that of war - for choosing the road of transatlantic integration. Therefore, NATO's support and open door policy are vitally important. The strong resistance of these countries to Russia's aggression, their will and determination to defend themselves contribute in a major way to European security, too," Grybauskaitė said.

Allied leaders gave a positive assessment to the progress made by Ukraine and Georgia, underlining that a successful implementation of strategic reforms was essential for joining NATO.

The Alliance values the contribution of Ukraine and Georgia to ensuring international peace and stability. The two countries are actively engaged in NATO-led international missions and operations.

NATO has also launched a platform of cooperation with Ukraine specifically dedicated to countering hybrid threats. Experts from allied countries help to restructure Ukraine's defense sector through joint programmes aimed at upgrading military training institutions. NATO remains committed to providing continued support to Ukraine through the Comprehensive Assistance Package.
