‘Lublin triangle’ brings Ukraine’s European integration closer – Lithuanian FM

Lithuanian Foreign Minister Gabrielius Landsbergis believes that the Lublin Triangle initiative, which unites Ukraine, Lithuania and Poland, brings Ukraine’s European integration closer.

He said this during an interview with Radio Liberty, Ukrinform reports.

“I think this format is very useful. I am sure that this format can be expanded and can cover more than just politics. We could also discuss common history, geopolitics, economics, and more. Such communication allows structuring our cooperation to some extent... This is certainly very useful and brings Ukraine's European integration closer,” he said.

He also believes that the Crimean Platform initiative is "crucial not only to find concrete solutions but also to remind of the problem [the occupation of Crimea]."

As a reminder, the Lublin Triangle is a trilateral format of interaction among Ukraine, Lithuania and Poland, created by the foreign ministers of these countries in July 2020. The first meeting of the Lublin Triangle was held by the foreign ministers of Ukraine, Lithuania and Poland on January 29 online.

The format participants agreed to coordinate actions to protect international law in the context of Russian aggression against Ukraine, both in trilateral coordination and in international organizations, including NATO, UN, EU, Council of Europe and OSCE.

The Crimean Platform is a new consultative and coordination format initiated by Ukraine to improve the efficiency of the international response to the occupation of Crimea, respond to growing security challenges, step up international pressure on Russia, prevent further human rights violations, protect victims of the occupying power and to achieve the de-occupation of Crimea and its return to Ukraine.

The Crimean Platform is to be launched officially at an inaugural summit in Kyiv on August 23, 2021.
