President of Ukraine Volodymyr Zelensky has met with Minister of Foreign Affairs of Lithuania Gabrielius Landsbergis in Kyiv, according to the press service of the head of state.

The president thanked Lithuania for its continued support for Ukraine's sovereignty and territorial integrity, European and Euro-Atlantic integration, and its sanctions policy against Russia.

"Ukraine must be a member state of the European Union. Thank you also for supporting Ukraine's accession to NATO. We expect that after receiving an Enhanced Opportunities Partner status, Ukraine should obtain a MAP. And in the future we see ourselves as a NATO member," Zelensky said.

The president also considers it important to support the position of the Ukrainian state in order to oppose the Nord Stream 2 project and preserve energy security in Europe.

"I want to thank you for the sanctions policy in connection with the temporary occupation of Crimea and the war in Donbas, and for the sake of Europe's energy security," he noted.

Zelensky stressed that he expects the personal participation of the president of Lithuania in the ceremonial events on the occasion of the 30th anniversary of Ukraine's independence and in the Crimean Platform summit to be held in Kyiv in August 2021.

The interlocutors discussed the situation in Ukraine and Lithuania in connection with the coronavirus pandemic and the measures taken by the leaders of both countries to overcome the pandemic and ensure the protection of citizens.
