Prime Minister Ingrida Šimonytė is sending a message of greetings to Canada, which is celebrating its National Day on 1 July.

In her letter to Canada’s Prime Minister Justin Trudeau, Ingrida Šimonytė notes closer bilateral cooperation between Lithuania and Canada in strengthening the NATO alliance and the democratic values ​​that bind these two countries.

‘Russia’s ongoing war against Ukraine and Russia’s offensive against democratic principles and the rule of law only confirm how it is now more important than ever to strengthen our bilateral ties and our partnership within NATO, and to help Ukraine with maximum efforts in defending its territory and our shared values.

We highly value Canada’s contribution to NATO presence in the Baltic region and look forward to working together to further strengthen the eastern part of our Alliance’, says Prime Minister Šimonytė.
